Can I use the address of my startup’s registered agent on my EIN application?
This article assumes you don't serve as your startup’s own registered agent (extremely rare and not recommended).
No, you can’t use the address of your startup’s registered agent on your EIN application. You must use the address of your startup's primary physical location. This is usually the address of your startup’s headquarters, main office, or wherever your startup’s officers are most often working. For startups that don’t yet have an office or who split activities between multiple locations, this is often the home address of one of the founders.
