    OK, there have been a bunch of threads lately about how to get a new ad$ense account, so I thought I would show you step-by-step how to get a new tax ID for your DBA. Keep in mind I am not a lawyer, so these are just my opinions.


    What is a DBA? DBA stands for "Doing Business As." It is an alternate identity for a sole proprietor. If you don't want the hassle of owning corporations but still want a separate legal presence for your small business, then a DBA is your go-to move. It allows you to create a new name in the marketplace. So if your name is John Smith, but you want to present yourself as "Smith's Internet Solutions" then you would register a DBA.


    Important Note: The EIN from the IRS is only one half of the puzzle! The other half is registering your DBA name with your state. Typically, this involves submitting a notice to a specific local newspaper and paying a fee (about $50 in most cases). These rules are different from state to state, so check the website of your state's Secretary of State. The instructions should be pretty obvious on that site. Make sure the name you want for your DBA is available before you get an EIN for it!


    OK, without further ado, here are the 20 steps to getting your own DBA EIN:

    yes, I've printed out the necessary form online, and will be sending it via mail.

    Im sure they'll take some sweet time to take of that, but in the mean time, hopefully I can apply for an EIN and use it fast.

    One Question, I see that additional DBA's are $7, I wonder if those come with new EIN's? That would be fun. $7 for an EIN, wohoo. Ill be looking into that as well.

    You can have as many DBAs and thus as many EINs as you want. I imagine it'll get pretty complicated to keep track of quickly though :).

    Below is my post on the same thread that inspired this one, detailing the full
    step-by-step to safely create multiple ad$ense accounts - including getting a
    new address, cloaking yourself online, setting up the DBA and the account itself.

    It well compliments burnett4congress' advice on setting up a Tax ID. :)

    Now first of all, I obviously can't 100% guarantee that this, or any method is
    going to work - as it ultimately will depend on the whims of Google and their
    detection algorithms, but I can absolutely say that this method has worked
    and continues to work for many people. So this is likely your safest bet.

    Let's hit the various areas one at a time. First of all, you need a new address.
    I personally would recommend a mail company like the UPS Store. The reason is
    that if you use a mail company like that, your address can say "Suite 101″ instead
    of "P.O. Box 101". It looks more legit to both Google and customers (should you
    ever use the address for another purpose).

    Now, about the actual identity you'll be registering with. Start off by filing a DBA
    in your county for the name of the new company (for US residents). This is usually
    done at your County Clerk or related office, find out what it is for your county.

    Once the DBA is finalized (price and how long you have to publish it for will vary
    from county to county, and the county will often help you through that process)
    you then go to the IRS for a Tax ID (follow burnett4congress' steps for this.)

    Now, here's one thing to consider: the IRS typically discourages you from having
    more than one Tax ID, but it is possible. I would recommend asking an accountant
    or attorney about the pros and cons as I'm not a tax expert. However, bear in
    mind that it can be done.

    Now, according to my research, your company only technically needs a Tax ID
    if you fall into one of the below categories:

    1.) Have employees.
    2.) Operate as a corporation or partnership.
    3.) You are required by your state or the federal government to file Employment,
    Excise, or Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms reports.
    4.) Your company plans to have a Keogh plan. This is a type of retirement account.
    5.) Are involved with any of the following types of organizations?
    -Trusts, except certain grantor-owned revocable trusts, IRAs, Exempt Organization
    Business Income Tax Returns
    -Estates
    -Real estate mortgage investment conduits
    -Non-profit organizations
    -Farmers' cooperatives
    -Plan administrators

    Regardless, you want a Tax ID for the purposes of giving it to Google, so you
    can be paid without having to use your own Social Security #, which is already
    connected to a different account. You do not need a Tax ID to open a business
    bank account.

    Now that you have your Tax ID, head over to Google and register an Adsense account
    for each company you own, using a different e-mail address for each.

    Bam! You're done. Just make sure that all of the sites you have the Adsense blocks
    on are using WhoIsGuard or another WhoIs identity protection service (may not be
    necessary, but it's one more layer of security).

    Now, some worry about using their Adsense accounts with the same IP. According
    to the people who have done this that I have spoken to, and per my own research,
    this may not be a problem. However, better safe than sorry, so if you would prefer
    yet another layer of security, you can set up a virtual machine or VPS, also ensuring
    that no cookies carry over from one session to another (you can get a good
    Windows VPS - Virtual Private Server - for $14-$35 a month and you can run some
    of your software on it to take some burden off of your personal PC as well.)

    This is the legitimate way of setting up multiple Adsense accounts. There are also
    non-legit ways, but this is the safest and most secure way out there.

    If you're referring to your County Clerk offering to register multiple DBAs on the
    same form, they don't come with free EINs to my knowledge. You'll usually have
    to get an EIN for each individually.

    Happy earning!

    So for each adsense account I need new VPS? and does each VPS have own unique IP/location.

    also for each EIN I setup do I need a new address meaning I would have to buy SUITE or PO BOX for each adsense account since adsense sends the pin in mail.

    thank you for posting this. I realize that many ppl want to stay away from paying taxes and such, however, there are some ppl who want to build legit businesses.
