How Does An Employer Get An Account Number Assigned In The District Of Columbia?

Employers are assigned a unique six­digit account number for unemployment insurance tax purposes early in the registration process. The account number assigned by DOES is different than an employer's Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN) or the business tax number assigned by the District of Columbia Tax and Revenue Department. The DOES employer tax account number should be included in all correspondence concerning DC unemployment insurance taxes.
