Preparer's Employer Identification Number (EIN)


This is question 107 on the FAFSA.

The EIN, or Employer Identification Number, is a number that a preparer must supply if a preparer fills out or files the application for the student.

A preparer is anyone who charges a fee for helping you fill out your FAFSA.

Typically high school counselors, school financial aid administrators, or other mentors do not charge a fee to help you complete your application, so they are not considered preparers unless you paid them for their services.
