Who Will Get The EIN For The Trust (Grantor or Trustee)

Typically the trustee will get the EIN, but either the grantor OR the trustee may do so. Whoever is chosen will need to input their Social Security Number, address and contact information. This will not bring the trust into the IRS' jurisdiction, but is used to send the EIN if a physical paper is requested for its receipt (online/instant receipt is suggested).
