Frequently Asked Questions

What is the process to update your business name in the IRS records?

Updating your business name in the IRS records is a crucial step when you decide to change your company's name. The process involves several steps, starting with amending the formation document of your business and filing it with the state where your business is registered. This updates the records of the secretary of state or other state agency responsible for regulating corporate affairs. However, your business name linked to your Employer Identification Number (EIN) would still remain the same in the IRS records. To update your business name in the IRS records, you need to use your new name while filing your annual tax return with the IRS and check the box in the form to indicate that the name of your business has changed. If you need to change your business name immediately after receiving your EIN and before filing any tax return, you should forward your request to the Cincinnati, Ohio, office of the IRS.
