How to Get Proof of EIN from the EFTPS website as a screenshot?

We partner with Cheqly and can assist their clients with all their EIN filing needs. To make things easier, We’ve created a guide that helps you verify your EIN if the IRS only reports it to you over the phone without any paper confirmation, which is necessary for opening a Cheqly account. Before starting this process, We assume you have an EIN given by the IRS and If you don’t have an EIN yet, don’t worry, you can order this service from us. This process helps you get proof of your EIN from EFTPS, which is required for compliance purposes.
