Please see here - the IRS lists all valid Taxpayer Identification Numbershttps://www.irs.gov/Individuals/International-Taxpayers/Taxpayer-Identification-Numbers-TINTaxpayer 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Adoptions "ATIN"Preparer Taxpayer Identification Number "PTIN"Note: The temporary IRS Numbers previously assigned are no longer valid.So far - if you are using any tax preparation software - that is a question for the tech support why the software doesn't accept SSN or you are entering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.
