I mistakenly created an EIN for my mother as an Estate instead of creating one for her trust. Can I have it switched or do I need to cancel it and recreate? If I create the correct one will it override my mistake?
Best and easiest practice is to create new TIN for trust matter.
Depending on information not provided, may be necessary to retain 2 separate TIN's for trust and estate.
