What is the name control requirement on the 941, 944, or 940 form?  How do I obtain my name control?


The name control is a unique four character company identifier based on the company's name and EIN.  The name control is assigned to a company by the IRS when an EIN is issued.  It is commonly the first four characters of the business name.

If you would like to obtain your Name Control, please contact the IRS Practitioner Priority Service at 866-860-4259 or the IRS Business & Specialty Line at 800-829-4933.
