Kentucky has no specific rules on sole proprietorships.

Assuming the individual is using an assumed name:

"John Buford, DBA Mega Mechanical;" the name of the individual should be first in the account title to facilitate IRS name/TIN matching.

The correct TIN for the account is John's SSN.

Please do not post the same question in more than one forum.
