A lot of people are becoming more interested in getting their foreign grantor 98 EIN, specifically assigned to your STRAW-NAME. This is good as the 98 EIN is a private side number that is obtained without the use of your social security number.
One of the most common purposes the 98 EIN has is the ability to use it to open a bank account. Being that it’s a private side number, we recommend using a private ID such as your world passport.
One of the commonly asked questions we get asked about filling out our 98 EIN order form is how to fill out the name of trust, the name of trustee, which country do I choose, and who gets appointed as the responsible party? In this post, we answer these questions in hopes to offer you clarity.
If you are applying for a foreign grantor 98 EIN for your STRAWMAN, then the information you provide is based on your DEBTOR’s name. We’d like to add that most people who have a Moorish-American name or a name-changed name get a 98 EIN for those names, so the 98 EIN does not have to be applied necessarily using your birth name.
Whether you’re using your birth name, name changed name or your Moorish-American name, below is a cheat-sheet to reference:
For example purposes, let’s say your name is JOHN HENRY AWARE.
Name of Trust: JOHN HENRY AWARE TR
Name of Trustee: JOHN HENRY AWARE TTEE
(TTEE is the abbreviation for Trustee)
Name of the Responsible Party: JOHN HENRY AWARE
Mailing Address: For the 98 EIN, the mailing address must be a private side address such as a P.O. box or a private mailbox address. Your resident address cannot be used for the mailing address as this would be mixing public and private which does not mix as most of you (should) know
Closing Month: December is the popular choice, but if you have another month you’d like to select, make sure to put that on your order form.
Starting Month & Year: Most people will ask us if they have to backdate the year to their 18th birthday, or to 25 years back. This used to be a very popular method before, especially when Patrick Devine was alive, however, we find that this is not necessary to backdate. Instead, the month and year can be the month and year you’re filling out the form, and most prefer to have it ‘up to date’ this way.
Foreign Country: The country must be outside of the United States of America. It cannot be Puerto Rico nor Hawaii as they are part of the U.S. jurisdictions. Most popular countries chosen is Canada, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Sweden, Switzerland, Peru, and Jamaica to just name a few. You can choose any country of choice. It does not have to be Hague or Non-Hague. You are welcome to have A.W.A.R.E choose a country for you, or you can choose one you’d like. If you do not have a foreign address, we’ll choose one for you at no additional charge. If we have to choose a country for you, you’ll be provided with a ‘stealth’ address.
If you’re applying for a 98 EIN for your business entity such as an LLC or Corporation:
For example purposes, let’s say the name of your business is ALL THE WAYS LLC.
Name of Business: ALL THE WAYS LLC
Name of Business Owner (Legal Name, must match your LLC/business paperwork): JANE MARIA AWARE
Mailing Address: This must be the address that the business uses.
Principal Activity of the Business: Must specify what the business does. Are you a retailer? E-commerce store selling clothes or tools, etc. Also, we’d need to know if your business is a sole member LLC and the member(s) of the LLC names are needed as well.
