Do we need a new EIN for our new nonprofit corporation?

Our homeschool group already has an EIN (Employer Identification Number), but we recently decided to work toward 501c3 status. We are now incorporated.
Do we need a new EIN or can we just change the name on the one we have?

You will be required to obtain a new EIN if any of the following statements are true.

  • A corporation receives a new charter from the secretary of state.

You can get a new EIN online, but it’s helpful to look over the Form SS-4 so you know what questions will be asked.
