A vendor has given us both an SSN and EIN, and their tax classification is Individual/Sole Prop. They require us to write the check to the DBA. What information goes on the 1099?


You may write the check to the DBA; you MUST use the legal name on the 1099. With a sole proprietor, you can use either the SSN or the EIN on the 1099. We recommend that you use the IRS TIN Matching program to validate SSNs and/or EINs.
