Before submitting a data request, companies that are wholly owned subsidiaries must check with its parent company to verify if a previous request has been submitted to the Census Bureau. The Census Bureau will only honor one free request per company per 365 day period.
When making a data request you must submit a request letter on your company letterhead addressed to:
Mr. Joe A. Cortez
Chief, Regulations, Outreach, and Education Branch
U.S. Census Bureau
4600 Silver Hill Road - Room 6K125
Suitland, MD 20746 (if sent by FedEx) or Washington DC 20233 (Regular Mail)
The signed request letter request must include:
A company may receive 12 months of data free of charge every 365 days. If a company requests more than 12 months of data in a 365 day time period, the company will be charged $125 per month for every extra month over the twelve. If a company is requesting more than 12 months of data, please make the check payable to Commerce/Census/FTD and send to the above address.
*Please Note: Requests typically are processed within 2-4 weeks; however, requests that contain 25 or more EINs may take one month or longer to process.
