There are various reasons why a business goes bankrupt. It happens every day in the United States, with an average of 26,000 businesses going bankrupt each year from 2013 to 2017. This staggering number does not even include the many small businesses that just closed shop and walked away from their collapsing businesses. If you have filed for bankruptcy and are considering starting another business, you will likely require a new Employer Identification Number (EIN). IRS-EIN-Tax-ID offers an online application processing and filing service that takes the headaches out of applying.
