Thread: Sole proprietor, can I add my business name to my EIN?

    Default Sole proprietor, can I add my business name to my EIN?

    I'm a sole proprietor with an EIN. Rarely, do I make enough from any one source that I get a 1099. When I do though, I have to give them my name before it will match with my EIN. Is it possible to add my business name to my EIN so that I can use that?

    I think you can if you get a DBA with your business name. I don't think you can change your existing one, but rather apply for a new one with the DBA. You can have multiple EIN's but each would be responsible for its own tax liability.
