Default EIN/Funds Withdrawl Question

My account has been put on hold because they are asking for EIN/SSN. On the IRS website to sign up as a Sole Proprietor you have to give your full name and SSN. The name on the ghost Amazon account is not my real name. Once I put in the EIN number doesn't Amazon verify it with the IRS? Since my real name and the account name don't match wont that send up a red flag?

Thanks
DD

I had a similar question about that. MyLLC is registered under my real address and wondered if that could link it somehow.

I have a pobox listed on amazon and listed that on the interview as well. So as long as they don't check, I should be good.

Default So let's ask this a different way

1) I filed for an EIN number using my correct name and SSN#
2) I will post it to Amazon that has a different name on the account.
3) What does Amazon/IRS do next?

Thanks
DD

Questions:
1) What is the best EIN type to get? I picked Sole Proprietor since there are no other fillings needed. Can you pick Corp, LLC and just not follow through with the other steps?

2) Do you provide your correct SSN, name and address when applying for an EIN?

Just so we are clear..I have no issue paying the proper taxes. I am having to jump through these hoops because Amazon keeps killing perfectly legal (things I am selling) accounts because of their lame rules.

Thanks
DD

Bump for this thread as I have a similar question about this. I need only one EIN. I would really like to avoid the cost and time it takes to get an LLC. Would it be OK to get an EIN using a Sole Proprietorship? Does Amazon have a way to link a SP to you as an individual?

As an individual and business no... but the IRS may and will track how many businesses or tax id's you have operating. If you're able and needing to have two EIN's you should at least connect the companies together to another dba; two companies with one DBA and two seperate names of business. Now, anybody in your faculty of business may use your EIN if approve by you, and Amazon cannot keep track of this. But do not play with the uncle sam.
