Here is my question in details..
1) This is the 3rd time i'm visiting U.S. and 1st time I came for visiting..
2nd time I came for visit in 2012 january but I got a job as i'm software engineer then I changed my visa status from B1/ B2 to H1-b.. Then I stayed here for 8 months and the project got finished then I went to my home country and again I came for visit for business purpose that means I want to invest in U.S. now that means I already have ssn because previously I was having H1 b visa
My question is again do I've to apply for ITIN or my ssn is enough..
Please provide me the answer in detail..
I heard that we can't have ssn and ITIN at the same time..
Can I apply for ITIN in my scenario..
see i'm right now on B1/B2 visa I know that once we start the business we will have Taxid but ITIN is individual tax identifier no.
Here my question if i'm on B1/B2 shall first before opening any business
do I've to open ITIN.
Your one of the expert told me here is the following links..

Yes, you can. You may need an ITIN to do it since you cannot get a Social Security Number. Here are some links, the first is a list of some of the things allowed on a B-1/B-2:http://travel.state.gov/pdf/BusinessVisa.pdf The second link is about the ITIN:
I really appreciate the way your giving the answer..
My another question to you is if my status changed to H1 b visa again then can I open the LLC or any corp and can I do a business here in U.S.
and what are the rules and restrictions for H1b visa holder..
The rules are the same whether you are on an H1B or a B1/2.
You may not provide any active services to the corporation. You can only hire a manager to see through your policy and procedures set as the shareholder and as set forth in the corporate documents.
It is no different that if you bought shares in Google and you vote your shares to establish the corporate policies and objectives.
You cannot go in and run google. You cannot go in and run your company.
In short I can open my own company like LLC or scorp etc..
But I've to hire one manager to operate my business..
So here my another questions
1)Can I take my own business or I've to take any partner..
2)If I get a loan can I takeover any business
3)Do I've to contac any attorney to know the procedures for starting business here in U.S.
4) what is this EIN could you please give me detail about that
when I've to take EIN?
I got a mail that I can ask n no of questions..
I've to go in depth otherwise how can I get the complete information..
If you are following my questions i'm getting the information suddenly if you tell me to open new thread of questions then again I've to ask all the questions so my request is please answer my questions once I got satisfied I will rate you..
here above regardin loan your one of the colleague told me that I can take a loan and I can even own the business but your statement is contradictory
NO, you provide any services to your business, not even sign checks.
The above statement you have written and one of your colleague told mediffrent so to whom I've to ask for clarification..
I did not say you could not get a loan. I had already told you the limitations in owning your business.
can I takeover any business
However, I have been very generous in my answers. I note that I even answered numerous other questions where an expert opted out and you did not rate me.
So I can only come to the conclusion you are not satisfied with my answers and I will allow this to open to another expert who you may find satisfactory.
I wish you all the very best with your new venture. I am not on salary and since I rely on positive ratings to earn my income, I need to assist my other customers now.
You certainly may continue to ask unlimited questions which are open to all the other experts to answer.
