Do I need a Tax ID to set up a business account?

We require each business account to provide a nine-digit federal Tax Identification Number (TIN). Each TIN is used for credit check and verification purposes.

The TIN you provide depends on whether you are a sole proprietor. If you are not a sole proprietor, this will be your nine-digit Employer Identification Number (EIN). If you are a sole proprietor, this is your nine-digit Social Security Number (SSN).
