Ok, so I need to provide a ein or ssn to Textbroker. What I want to see is if I can get a freelancer ein, and how long does it take? I also sell shirts using a paypal cart, and between articles and shirts, I've made almost 2k. Know it has taken alot of time and expense cost to make this shirts, and this was my only reported income this year since I did off the wall jobs offline. Whats the best way to go about this, and am I qualified for any tax deductions (I don't have a llc, but I have proof and receipts showing I spent etc on supplies).
