    No. business licenses are issued by local governments, such as the city in which you reside, or if you are in an unincorporated area, the county.

    Tax IDs (EIN) are Federal, issued by the Treasury Dept. There is a simple IRS form to request one. You can download it here.

    Also, if your business is a "sole proprietorship," I believe the "Tax ID" requested by most companies and the federal government is or can be simply your Social Security Number. I do only "sole proprietorship" business right now and whenever I'm asked for a Tax ID, my SS number works.
