    Today, Paypal put a limitation on my account due to not providing tax information. I had nearly hit my $20,000 limit already. The only limitation that was put on my account is not being able to receive funds. I can do everything else with my account BUT receive sales.

    I do not mind providing Paypal with my tax information but I am wanting to do this as a TIN (Taxpayer Identification number) not my social or EIN. Any place to get this online instantly? or does anyone know of a way around this?

    I called paypal to try and extend this limitation to give me this week and they would not do this. In fact, they actually advised me to open another paypal account under the same name, same details, and just let money pile up in it. Then once I provide my TIN number, I can send the funds over to my original account to just withdraw it that way. I do not really trust that so I just forward funds over to a buddies paypal until it clears up.

    a TIN is used for individuals who do not have employees. EIN is for businesses who have employees. At least that is what I understood it to be.

    I had a EIN long time ago. Just do not know it anymore. Anyway to retrieve this online? Just trying to avoid having to call the IRS but I might have.

    A TIN is only for someone that doesn't have a SS# a EIN can be used for any kind of business.
