Hello all! I have a huge problem on my hands. I have had a banned eBay/Paypal account in the past. With my current account I am using, it uses my real address and real last name. But my first name is simply a nickname. I logged on to Paypal today to find out that they are requiring either my SSN, or upgrade to business account and proivde EIN, or provide a Tax ID. What is my next step here? I want to make sure I am doing the right things as far as the IRS. Do I have to change my first name atleast to a nickname of my real name? Please any information on what to do would be tremendous and god bless. I truly do not want to lose my paypal or eBay account at the same time not to be tackled by IRS.
