The name on the IRS form doesn't really matter, because anyone can request the tax ID number from the IRS--they don't have to be an officer or director or investor. Sometimes the lawyer or accountant will obtain the IRS number for the company, but it doesn't mean anything.

What really matters is who the company has elected as officers and directors and who holds the stock. His acts really have no legal effect here.

well he wasn’t on the articles filed wuth the state and tried to remove me from my company last week with a resolution signed by him as the managing member and majority stockholder in the company of which only i am listed on the articles filed and just as the creator so i filed the franchise report for 2018 and 2019 and signed off as the managing member and owner he was nowhere in the documents he called all my customers said i was fired but after i dissolved the corporation and told him he was not a member just an investor of which we both signed on the loan he now has called my insurance agent and said he is president of the corp and canceled all my insurance auto and workers come building and gen liability isn’t his signing that resolution removing me from my company as the majority stockholder fraudulent and illegal since he was never anywhere in the articles and i stopped him from filing the franchise report and putting himself down as an officer when i dissolved it before he could do so i believe he was running a scam on me and waited a year after my company had doubled in assets and tried to tajd it over but didn’t count on me dissolving it before he could file the report and make himself a part of it without my knowledge he told me we were 50/50 partners all year but i don’t think he is a partner at all

Customer reply replied 29 days ago
you can just answer by typing that’s fine u don’t have to call im neefingbto know if he is considered a partner if i am thr only one listed on the articles filed even though he got ein for the company because he gave me a resolution after one year trying to remove me and i am the only person listed with the state and so i closed dissolved the corporation after filing the franchise reports that day i think that blocked his scam attempt to steal my company and he signed that resolution as the majority stockholder snd president managing member when he isn’t listed with the state just on the irs form when we got the ein doesn’t this seem fraudulent
