A state tax ID is a number given to a business by the state in which it operates. Also known as a state EIN, state employer ID, or a state tax registration, it’s used primarily for filing taxes and payroll.

When you add a state tax ID number to a payer employer record, Adams® Tax Forms Helper® will auto-populate the number on all your new W-2, 1099 and 1098 forms you create for that payor.

To add an employer/payer state ID number:

  • Select the “Payer/Employer” tab

  • Select the payer and click the “state numbers” link to the right

On the next page, you’ll see the payer name. If you’ve already added state ID numbers, you’ll see those listed here as well.

  1. Click “Add State Number”

  2. Select the payer’s state from the drop-down menu

  3. Add the state number

  4. Click “Save” to update your records.

Repeat or Return to Payers

From here you can choose to:

  • Add another state number for this payer/employer

  • Go to a list of state numbers for this payer/employer

  • Or return to your complete list of payer/employers
