Business tax ID number and Proof of current address - how to show?

Post by doss » Sat Jun 09, 2018 3:04 pm

I recently applied for a business credit card that went to "under review". I got a letter a week later asking for proof (documents dated from within the last 3 months) for the following:
  • 1.) Federal tax ID number
  • 2.) Proof of current business physical address
I have 14 days to send those documents. I would call them today for clarification on what counts as "proof" but they are closed for the weekend.

Does anyone know if a check payment from a customer (sent this month) with a PAY TO THE ORDER OF my business name and address counts for item #2?

I am not sure how to send a document dated within last 3 months for my federal ID number. Will my tax return Schedule C work? If not, what are other ideas?


Thanks

Did you apply with your SS number or with a business EIN? Read https://www.fundera.com/blog/business-c ... g-ein-only

I applied with a biz EIN.

I don't have a utility bill to show because I use a home office and the utility is in my personal name.

Are you an LLC or S-Corp? If so, you might be able to look up your registration on the state website and send a copy of that.

Yes, they just wanted me to send in my EIN letter from IRS.
