Post Paypal asking for Tax number [Stealth Account]

Dear xxxxxx xxxxxx,

We're asking for your tax ID number due to new IRS rules. Your tax ID
number is one of these:

- Your Social Security number
- Your Individual Tax Identification Number
- Your Employer Identification Number

We'll use your tax ID number to send tax Form 1099-K to you and the IRS
when the payments you receive exceed both of these milestones in a calendar
year:

- $20,000 in gross payment volume for goods or services
- 200 payments for goods or services

We want to help you continue to sell with PayPal and to avoid any
interruption to your account. It's easy ó here's how:

1. Log in to your PayPal account.
2. A message will appear asking you to update your information.
3. Click Provide Now.

If you have multiple PayPal accounts, repeat these steps for each account.

We appreciate your help in complying with these IRS rules. For more
information, see our FAQs on the IRS reporting requirements:
www.paypal.com/irs

Sincerely,
PayPal

This is my stealth account. Do I have to comply? If I provide my SS, will the account get linked? I'm Canadian btw, but sells on US ebay site.

Thank you

If you don’t comply they will lock the account.

How do you have SSN if you are Canadian? Joint citizenship? If so, get an EIN.

I do have my SS but, I'm worried if I provide it, it will get linked to my other account.

Sorry I was not clear on my previous post. The account is Canadian account. However, I do sell on eBay.com maybe that's why I received the email from paypal.
