Form 8821 authorizes the IRS to share information about your company, including your issued EIN, to the person you appoint.
Firstbase.io will often ask you to complete this form. The Form 8821 will allow our team to call and receive updates from the IRS regarding your EIN. With the continued delays and backlogs as a result of COVID-19 and the government shutdowns in 2020, the Form 8821 will assist in retrieving an EIN for a foreign founder as quickly as possible.
If you have specific questions about this form or would like more information, you can reach out the Customer Success team.
