Dear sir or madam,
I am a foreigner and just had a CPA set up a corporation in CA. Since I have no SSN or ITIN, CPA applied EIN for my company online as the third party designee. I signed SS-4 and a statement. During the application online, I noticed CPA used his SSN as the third party designee and I got the EIN immediately. My questions are:
1. Is it proper to use third party designee’s SSN to apply EIN for my company?
2. This does not mean CPA is the reasonable party of my company, right? But in the online application, Responsible Party and third party designee can be the same person?
3. What is the liability or rights of the third party designee for EIN purpose only?
