If i am from outside of USA how can i get a SSN ? In that case what i have to do
You can get EIN which will work and it's legal white hat way would cost you about $600.
You do not need to have SSN. Use your tax id from your country.
SSN is not needed the proper form is called w-8BEN
You dont need any number and if you really want EIN its free. You need w-8BEN
How to get EIN free?
All of these tax id's are free, you just need to send your application / documents to the IRS. There are some companies out there doing this whole process for you.
As far as I know, as a non us resident you're only eligible for an ITIN.
Anyway, as a foreigner, you are exempt of taxes and you don't need any tax id. Just submit W8.
Hey, How to fill the w8 form as a foreigner? Is it https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/fss4.pdf?
