You can apply for your federal tax ID number here. During the application process, you will be asked to provide basic information including details regarding your business structure or the type of organization you operate, personal information, addresses, and other details relating to your business.

So, if you are looking to make an electronic payment, file an electronic return or pass an IRS taxpayer identification number TIN matching program, you will need to wait until you are a part of the permanent record.
