I am a US citizen and have a ssn. Many of the CPA networks want to get my SSN, before they will send me any money. Call me paranoid, but I would prefer to not give it out. I hear that you can give them an EIN, or something instead? I've used search, but I'm getting jumbled information about SSN/EIN/TIN/LLC. Is there anyone that could help me straighten this out? Thank you very much, in advance!
