Maybe. How much will it cost me? I have a W-9 and 1099 misc
OK I started my own LLC about 5 months ago. Im the sole member so I understand that the IRS sees me as a disregarded entity. I also do not get taxed as a corporation and I do not at this time have any employees. I do construction and I very often have sub contractors do work for me.

Thats why i thought I obtained an EIN. Do I in fact have to use my SSN on W-9 and 1099 misc? … read more
