Hello, I just registered the other day since many sections on this forum caught my eye. Anyway, I'm planning on opening my own online business soon and I'm having trouble obtaining a EIN and/or Tax ID since I know little or almost noting about it. I'm currently 15 years old and I'm a US Citizen and I was wondering if I'm still eligible in having one of these? I want to sell mostly on eBay and Amazon and eventually open my own Store or website. In order to do that I need to buy inventory from liquidations, wholesalers & drop shippers which require either a Tax ID or EIN. Can someone tell me the difference between a Tax ID and EIN and which one I would need to reach my goals and which one do the suppliers require? Also, if someone can link me to the forms to fill out your information on obtaining a EIN or Tax ID and give me a price on how much it would cost. I would appreciate it. Thanks in advance!
