This topic is probably a bit "small potatoes" for this forum... but we all have to start somewhere, right?
My affiliate marketing ventures have crossed an income threshold where I'm now being asked for tax reporting information. I'm not comfortable having my social security number all over the place, so I looked into getting an EIN. I was pleased to learn they can be issued to sole proprietors -- I'm not quite ready for LLC or INC just yet!
What is not clear to me is whether I would need to file some sort of business tax return for the EIN, or if the income would pass through and be declared on my personal return. I'm hoping somebody on this forum has experience with that and can lend some insight (as soon as possible -- they're holding my payment!). Thanks in advance.
