Can beneficiary be added to a business account that is set up as a sole proprietorship and using the individuals social security number on the account?
We have a potential new customer who does business as a scrap dealer (appliances etc.). He receives checks made out to the name of his business. Does he need to have an account titled with the business name or can the checks be deposited into an account in his name, since it is a sole proprietorship and does not have a federal tax ID for the business? How should sole owner accounts be set up?
How do I fill out Section A and Section B CTR form for a sole proprietorship?
Currently, when we receive a IRS Tax Levy, we look at the Social Security Number or EIN Number on the Levy and the name. We then research this information in our system to see if they have an account(s) and what funds are available to hold on the day the Levy is presented. We base this on the Name and EIN or Social Security Number provided on the Levy. My question is if we perform our search and determine that the primary name and Social Security number on the account does not match the Levy but the person the Levy pertains to is a signer or secondary owner to the account (Joint Account), should we hold those funds? Should this be done even if it's a Business, Minor Account, IOLTA, Escrow etc.? I would think consideration should be given to the relationship the person upon whom the Levy is presented has to the account.
Is there a requirement to run an OFAC check on a DBA? For example, John Doe DBA ABC Store. Do I need to run an OFAC on John Doe and ABC Store, or simply John Doe?
Can a child's Social Security Number be used on a business banking account?
A customer has a DBA sole proprietorship using his social security number. Are there any regs, etc., that say it cannot be in a "personal type" checking account? We only have a "commercial account" and nothing for the small "mom and pop" type of business.
We have a sole proprietorship account opened with the customer’s social security number. The customer wants to change it to an LLC account, do we need to required them to provide a TIN or EIN?
The bank has received a levy for a taxpayer. The name on the levy is styled as: John Doe DBA Doe's Auto Sales. The tax id number on the levy is an EIN, not John's SSN. We do not have any accounts for the business, but we do for the owner, in his social security number. Does the levy on the business extend to his personal account since it is a DBA?
We have to file a CTR for a cash deposit to an account of a single member LLC that uses its member's Social Security number instead of an EIN. Should we use the 2008 DBA ruling from FinCEN as a "go by" to complete the CTR?
