What is a Hawaii Tax ID number?

This is different from a Social Security number (SSN) or employer identification number (EIN). It's the unique identification number assigned to each Hawaii tax account.

The Hawaii Tax ID starts with a two-letter account type identifier followed by 12 digits. The "GE" account type stands for General Excise/Use and County Surcharge Tax.

Individuals can register online to receive their ID by filing Form BB-1 through Hawaii Business Express . To learn more about Hawaii Tax ID numbers, see items 12 - 19 of this edition  of Hawaii's Tax Facts publication.
