No, Once the IRS issued the EIN number you cannot cancel it anymore.
This EIN is your business permanent number and can be used immediately for most of your business needs, including:
However, it will take up to two weeks before your EIN becomes part of the IRS's permanent records. You must wait until this occurs before you can:
ITINs that have not been used on a tax return for Tax Year 2016, Tax Year 2017 or Tax Year 2018 will expire December 31, 2019. Additionally, ITINs with middle digits of 83, 84, 85, 86 or 87 (e.g. 9NN-83-NNNN) will also expire at the end of the year.

Once you have viewed your information, you can:
If you can’t afford to pay your taxes, it’s imperative you still file tax a return and make arrangements to pay what you owe. Failing to file and/or pay your taxes on time will result in interest and penalties.
If you can’t afford to pay the full amount you owe by the deadline, the IRS has multiple payment options that could help, including installment agreements. Keep in mind that you’ll still owe interest, and possibly penalties, even if you enter into a payment arrangement.
Costs and fees of payment plans vary depending upon the duration of your plan and whether you apply by mail or online.
According to the IRS, most refunds are issued within 21 days for taxpayers who e-filed and who are having their refund directly deposited. Refunds take up to six weeks if you submitted paper returns. Claiming certain credits or deductions might delay your refund. You can check the status of your refund on the IRS “Where’s My Refund” website.
The deductions and credits you’re eligible to claim vary depending upon your situation. Here are some deductions that you can claim even if you don’t itemize.
Deductions you may be eligible to claim only if you itemize:
Both tax credits and tax deductions can reduce the amount of tax you must pay. Deductions reduce the amount of income you pay taxes on, which in turn can reduce your tax. Credits are a dollar-for-dollar reduction in the amount of tax you owe.
If you had an income of $30,000 and took a $1,000 deduction, you don’t have to pay tax on that $1,000 of income. The deduction could save you $200 (assuming a 20% tax rate on that $1,000).
By contrast, a $1,000 credit would reduce the actual amount of tax you owe by that $1,000. So if you owed $3,000 in taxes, you’d now owe $2,000 and save $1,000.
Deductions reduce taxable income. You have a choice between taking a standard deduction or itemizing your deductions. When you itemize, you reduce taxable income by the value of certain expenses deductible under U.S. tax law. For example, if you pay mortgage interest, you can deduct the interest paid — but only if you itemize.
To decide which deductions to take, compare the value of the standard deduction versus the total value of your itemized deductions. The standard deduction was raised for tax years 2018 to 2025.
Because tax reform virtually doubled the standard deduction from 2017 to 2018, you may find your itemized deductions don’t exceed the standard deduction amount for your filing status.
Beginning with the 2018 tax year, a single Form 1040 has replaced the previous three versions — Forms 1040, 1040EZ and 1040A.
The simplified 1040 form is half the size of recent forms and uses a “building block” approach to simplify the filing process. Taxpayers with more-complex tax situations may need to submit additional forms (called “schedules”), but all 150 million individual U.S. taxpayers start with the same basic form.
The U.S. has a progressive tax system, so not all your income is necessarily taxed at the same rate.
Tax brackets refer to the range of incomes taxed at specific rates, while your marginal tax rate is the highest tax bracket applicable to your income.
There are seven tax brackets under current tax law. To find out which one you fall into — and what your tax rate is — you’ll need to know your income. You can then use IRS Tax Rate Schedules for the taxable year to determine your bracket, what your marginal tax rate is, and how much tax you might owe.
A dependent is a person you’re responsible for supporting. If you can claim a dependent, you can become eligible for certain tax breaks, including the child tax credit. You may also qualify for head-of-household status.
You may have a dependent if …
The IRS provides an Interactive Tax Assistant Tool to help you determine if you have a dependent.
Tax filers are treated differently based on household status. To inform the IRS of which rules apply to you, you’ll have to choose a filing status. There are five: single, married filing jointly, married filing separately, head of household and qualifying widow(er) with dependent child.
Your filing status affects your tax rate, standard deduction, and eligibility for certain deductions and credits. The IRS provides an interactive tool to help taxpayers choose a filing status.
Consider hiring or outsourcing an accountant if you do not have the time, skills, or inclination to do this work. However, bear in mind, this is not a situation where you hire the professional and then forget about the subject. It is your company, and the financial statements are yours.
For employees, withholding is the amount of federal income tax withheld from your paycheck. The amount of income tax your employer withholds from your regular pay depends on two things:
For help with your withholding, you may use the Tax Withholding Estimator. You can use the Tax Withholding Estimator to estimate your 2020 income tax. The Tax Withholding Estimator compares that estimate to your current tax withholding and can help you decide if you need to change your withholding with your employer.

Direct deposit is one type of payment you can offer employees. It is used by 82% of workers, making it the most popular payment method. Many business owners like direct deposit because it is convenient. You can pay employees without having to hand them a physical check, which also makes it a safe payment option. You don’t need to worry about employees losing paychecks with sensitive business information. Some states let employers implement mandatory direct deposit.
