    is vs. are

    Invoice and tax id number are together. I am speaking to someone. I am giving someone information. Would I say, here is the invoice and tax number or here are the invoice and tax number?

    Dear Ms. Nyree:

    I assume you are talking about the invoice and the tax ID number, and not the invoice number and the tax ID number.

    If the invoice and the tax ID number are two separate things, each important enough to be mentioned, I would say, 'Here are the invoice and the tax ID number.'
    However, if the tax ID number is something that is included on the invoice, I might say, 'Here is the invoice, which includes the tax ID number.
    or
    'Here is the invoice. You'll find the tax ID number in the top right hand corner.'

    I hope this is helpful,

    Petra
