So do you think I should just do my personal social security or do the EIN? As a matter of opinion. Again it will just show that I sent out the 1099's extremely late. Should I just go and get the EIN and if so can I put that down at this point, even though the 1099 that was given to me was under my personal tax id. Or should I just send the 1099 with my personal ID and not think twice about it. Just dont want my number out there. But more importantly at this point, dont want to be responsible for all the taxes when i paid someone the money. Just asking as I have needed and need to get these out asap.
