Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
You do not want to use your social security number to apply for the EIN and you don't want the funds to be deposited into an account that is associated with your EIN or SS#. You will need to create a trust, apply for EIN and open a trust bank account.
It might be easier to find a local nonprofit organization or church and ask them to open the bank account with the family as the beneficiary.
I see you read my respond. Do you have any questions? Is there anything else I can help you with today?
To apply for an EIN you need a person or an entity. One member of the family apply for the EIN or you/they will need to create some type of nonprofit trust.
With certain restrictions you can apply for EIN online and get it instantly. Or you will receive it in mail or fax in one or week.
Here's how to apply
