Do you file employment tax returns, excise tax returns, or alcohol / tobacco / firearm tax returns?

Maryland Federal Tax ID numbers are issued by the IRS in a nine-digit format such as 12-3456789.
They uniquely identify your business to the government in the same way that Social Security Numbers do for individuals. But various non-government vendors will also request the number during routine commerce in Maryland. For example, Maryland banks will require you to provide one before opening a business bank account.Source: www.simplefilings.com
