My spouse died and our business was in his name. Would you
change the name of the account to mine?
Before we can do that we need to know a couple of things. First,
have you contacted the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) about this
change? If so, did they require you to apply for a new Federal
Identification Number (FEIN)?
If the IRS has issued you a new FEIN then we are going to have
to issue you a new account number. This is because of the requirement
that our reports to the IRS (which are based on what you report
to us) must match what you report to them or we both get messages
from the IRS.
If a new FEIN is not required, then we would be happy to update
the account information as needed. Please send us an updated Employer
Registration Form (form 1002) and we will make the necessary changes.
