I do not really have a business, so I have no employees either, so I would not expect to have an EIN.But in the mid 1990s, I engaged in two financial transactions where I was required to pay an excise tax. So I got the form to do that and it required an EIN. I put my SSN in there and the IRS said it was not acceptable, an EIN was required.So I make up a phony name for a non-existent business, sent it to the IRS who issued me an EIN. I put that into the form and paid the tax.Next year they sent me form to complete the tax return for that business, so I filled it out. No sales, no income, no expenses, no assets. I sent that in. They sent me forms for a few more years, and then they must have assumed I went out of business.
