What is a CP575? The CP575 is the confirmation letter that you get from the IRS when you obtain a Employer Identification Number – EIN or “Tax Id#” for a business. To enroll with Medicare, you must provide a copy of this letter as proof of the legal name of the business. If you do not have the original CP575, then you can request a replacement letter 147C to verify your EIN. These two documents are the only documents that Medicare accepts as proof of your EIN.
Click here for an example of a CP575 To request a replacement letter 147C, you can call the IRS business center at (800) 829-4933. The hours of operation are 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. local time, Monday through Friday. Allow 4-6 weeks for processing the request.
