Talking PayPal Asking for SSN/ITIN -But I have LLC EIN

Hello my good people. How's summer time treating everyone because for me PayPal decided to ramp up verification on one of my stealth accounts.

They are asking for Tax Documents because of the following:

"The name and tax ID on your PayPal account don’t match the IRS records."

I have a business account and have been using the EIN as means of verification with $100k yearly (since 2017)

The name is in a stealth name but the LLC is legitimate and it DOES match the IRS records But obviously they are saying the EIN I uploaded and the personal name on the account doesnt match---
they are asking me to upload tax documents within 4 weeks or else face restrictions

They need a W9 form...but I'm the Owner of the Business and the PayPal is a business account. But W9 form will not match the stealth name

Thoughts? Thanks in advance

Default Re: PayPal Asking for SSN/ITIN -But I have LLC EIN

if you use his SSN,it would show up as his income.
he would not only have to report such,but if he is audited for small business,how is he going to show he has received payment if the payment is going to your bank account?
it could get worse,in a state sales tax audit and all states are stepping up their efforts to collect sales tax,if you state audits you,why are you using a different SSN,if they audit him,is he in the same state as you?

Thanks for your response. Since that is an option I clearly indicated I would not do- do you have any other advice?

Did PayPal indicate what type of restrictions would be faced if the W-9 isn't provided? I've heard of the limitation where they need you to provide business information such as a document for business address and the EIN document itself. Those ones seem to be avoidable and the only limitation is that you can't spend the PayPal balance (still able to withdraw).

Is this something similar in terms of the restrictions?

Any more potential solutions to OP’s question? I received the same notice and am panicking. I have a 8 year old stealth account and other than them asking for an ss/ein a couple of years ago, it’s been trouble free. Anybody?

So.... Yes, the past year Paypal is asking for the EIN and Business name to be updated multiple times. Simply do that.... If it keeps occurring, call paypal and they will fix the glitch on their side. It is about 2 minutes on the phone. It does not happen on every account but it does happen.
