Subject: Estimated Tax Payments using EIN Date: 6/12/2005 11:28 PM

All,

I'm a sole proprietor with an EIN for my consulting business. The reason I applied for the EIN was to establish an i401k plan which allows a generous profit sharing contribution (tax sheltered of course).

My question is this - the 1040ES estimated tax payment vouchers appear to require that I list my Social Security number, can or should I put my EIN here instead? If I use my Social, will I have problems with the IRS later with the tax-free money that I'm putting into the i401k?

The estimated tax forms for businesses look like a huge pain so I'm trying to avoid these if possible.

Thanks!

K
