    I could be wrong but I thought you tax id was you social security #. I wuld email customer sevrice at the main pc website they will get you all the correct info. But you would think if she can get a job at walmart she can sell pc.

    Is she a US citizen?

    An ID vs. a Driver's License has no bearing on PC status.

    She needs a US social security number.

  4. Thanks!

    Thanks! My recruit is from Mexico and doesn't have an ITIN number yet and won't for a while. She's sad! PC wants to break into the hispanic market but many of them can't be consultants because of this!

    I would call the HO for guidance. Ask to speak to Grace Calderon (I think that's her name). She is the woman in charge of the Hispanic Market stuff.

    Maybe she could help?

    My Director has had experience in this area and she has informed me that PC will accept either SSN# or a "tax ID#". Either one will do.

    My recruit has neither SSN or Tax ID. She is trying to get a Tax ID...

    Tax ID

    I believe all she has to do to get a Tax ID is to go to a Notary Public and apply for it.

    Let us know what happens.

    Only the IRS can assign a tax ID #. If she can't get an ITIN (Individual Tax Identification Number used for resident aliens) than there is more than likely a problem with her status in the US. Legal status in the US is not a factor in obtaining this number, but I'm thinking that she may not have a work permit or the proper ID's to obtain it or may be hesitant as to how this would affect her residency.

    I would check IRS-ITIN for the info you're looking for.
