To search for EIN’s for free, you could register for a free trial at www.einfinder.com which allows you to perform three free EIN searches. Unfortunately there is no service that offers unlimited free searches, but you could try registering for free trials with a couple of different paid sites to get more searches.

You only need to enter some basic information to obtain your free trial including name, email, postal address and company name. Once you have your free trial, you can search by company name, state, zip code or industry code. The database holds over seven million official ID numbers assigned by the IRS to U.S. Businesses including corporations, partnerships, LLCs, proprietorships, trusts and estates. All businesses operating in the US need an EIN, also known as a Federal Tax Identification Number, so these kind of databases are a great way to find official data on any business and can also help you to verify that companies are who they claim to be before you do business with them.

The only other way to find Employer Identification Numbers would be to spend time trawling through public records and filings, but this is an extremely time consuming process and you may not find what you want. This is why websites such as EINFinder exist and why you have the pay for the service, because it cuts out the time and effort you would have to spend finding the information you want otherwise.

Look up an EIN number for a publicly traded company on their Investor Relations website, or this website: CheckInt. Most have an SEC Filings page. On the filings page, open any Securities and Exchange Commission filing document. The EIN must be listed on the first page of the document.

Knowx.com is an okay site. Customer service is terrible (it's e-mail only), but you can pay-per-search or pay a monthly subscription for unlimited searches.

Not Free but the ;largest EIN Database in the USA is www.feinsearch.com

The only free way is to call the company yourself..... But that takes more time and trouble than it's worth to find someone willing to help so my suggestion is simply go to FEINsearch and subscribe. The trial only gives you partial EIN

An ein number is public information.  Contact your state business/taxation department and they should be able to give it to you.

Use hoovers.com, then try the edgar reporting service viewing the K-10, then try the corporate headquarters website, then use a pay service like einfinder.com or the like.
