Thumbs up Is there anyway to circumvent an SSN request?

If PayPal request an SSN to be faxed in (after they limit your account for whatever reason) can you supply them with an EIN?
Or is it absolutely necessary to supply them with a full SSN if an account is limited?

They will accept a EIN but you must either have a business PP account or upgrade to the business account in order to use a EIN.

Okay, what can they see with an EIN, just your name or also your address? Or can they see other things?

paypal doesnt see anything. they use your EIN and send you the paperwork to the address provided on paypal for filing taxes. they just need to comply with laws, and could care less if you file your taxes or not, that is up to you.

When they submit the EIN to the IRS for verification it only checks the business name and EIN match up. Since you have to use your real information for the EIN they do not have access to that. The IRS can simply tell them that either it matches or it doesn't.

Remember though that you will be responsible for the taxes on the sales as the IRS will get a 1099K at the end of the year from Paypal.

EIN stands for Employer Identification Number. Just google it and you can find out how to get one.

Honestly if you dont know what the EIN is then you are not needing one. You are a hobbyist selling on ebay and just post your ssn if you have to.

Read these forums there are many posts explaining this in full.

I agree with King Ray.

You need to spend a ton of time reading here. If you had done that the answer if right before your eyes.

This has been at the top of many areas within the forum because of its popularity here.

None of us know everything but using the search button is very important to your learning.
