For a new church, get EIN online

In my mind’s eye, I imagine a new congregation organizing team having working meeting with a laptop and an Internet connection knocking out all manner of little tasks that once took more time and effort.

A new church in the United States is going to need an Employee Identification Number to hire anyone or open a banking account. You can now do it online and I started a dry run and I think it would take a few minutes. You will also need a group-approved responsible party with a Social Security number.
