Getting Documents and Info for Account Verification

In some cases, there are documents you can obtain online without having to go to a physical location. If you're located in the U.S., for example, you can consider using tools like the following: 
  • Get Your EIN Online: The IRS has a comprehensive list of online tools and resources you can use. Under Business Topics, you can apply to get an Employer Identification Number for your company. 
  • Open a Business Bank Account: The FDIC (Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation) has published a list of banks where you can open an account online.
  • Contact the Taxpayer Advocate Service: Having difficulties contacting the IRS for tax issues? TAS can assist you free of charge through their website.
As stated in Wix Payments' terms of use, it is your responsibility to ensure you have all the required documents to verify your account. The information in this article is not legal advice and you should not rely upon it as such.
