Just wondering how many of you use a company name or just do business under your own name. If under your own name, did you get a separate TIN #?
You should have it either way as a lot of venues require the 1 or even 2 mil liability policy for any kind of subcontractor working on their property. As for the EIN or TIN it is the only way to go it will significantly limit the exposure of your personal SSN.If you are a sole prop and not incorporated, you may need liability insurance.
If I decide to get going again as a sole prop, I will get a separate IRS TIN and not use my social number.
