The SSN is a valid tax ID.

Please see here - the IRS lists all valid Taxpayer Identification Numbers Identification NumbersSocial Security Number "SSN"Employer Identification Number "EIN"Individual Taxpayer Identification Number "ITIN"Taxpayer Identification Number for Pending U.S. Adoptions "ATIN"Preparer Taxpayer Identification Number "PTIN"Note: The temporary IRS Numbers previously assigned are no longer valid.So far - if you are using any tax preparation software - that is a question for the tech support why the software doesn't accept SSN or you are entering information regarding that ID incorrectly.
