    Does anyone know if the number you get from IRS can be used right away or do I have to send them some papers or wait X number of days before the EIN can be used ? By the way, I got my EIN by submiting an online application at IRS website. Thanks

    The Social Security Number can also be used as an EIN

    its better to use EIN instead of your SS, because of all the identity theft issue
