Updating Business Information
Send a letter requesting the change, be specific about the year end date desired. Include your corporation’s Utah entity number, federal employer identification number (EIN), and the exact name of your corporation in your request.
First, change the officer information with the Utah Department of Commerce. Send form TC-69C, Notice of Change for a Business Entity and/or Tax Account, to the Tax Commission with a copy of the officer information record obtained from the Utah Department of Commerce showing the new officers.
If you change your business structure (E.G. from partnership to corporation) with the Department of Commerce the IRS may require you to have a new Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN) for the business . Utah tax accounts are permanently linked to a specific FEIN. If the IRS requires a change of FEIN you must close any of your previous Utah tax accounts using form TC-69C, Notice of Change for a Business Entity and/or Tax Account, and request new tax accounts for the new FEIN using form TC-69, Utah State Business and Tax Registration. If the IRS allows you to retain the previous FEIN file form TC-69C showing you have changed entity types and attach a letter from the IRS showing they are allowing you to retain the prior FEIN after the conversion.
