The service provides lookup access to a database of employer identification numbers (EINs) and related information for over 16 million suppliers doing business with U.S. companies. It allows for verification of tax reporting accounts for vendors, contractors, and suppliers to allow compliance with payment reporting requirements. Search options allow either individual or batch lookup to retrieve EIN values or verify those supplied by vendors.
API methods support search against a database of tax-paying companies with returned data specifying EIN or Tax ID number, primary industry SIC code, phone and fax numbers, and verified addresses. The API also provides operating information like the year the company started, its employee head-count, and estimates of sales and revenue.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
