Q&A with the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue
Why does the Department of Revenue require an EIN for the R&D credit electronic applications for subcontractors that taxpayers are not required to issue 1099s for?
The Department of Revenue may request this information to help substantiate the business’s activity. It can also be used to ensure that the activity is not being claimed by both the applicant and its sub-contractor(s).
