Is not having an EIN legal and how does the Church Staff then report their info for tax time.
Our church does not have an EIN ( not registered with the IRS ) which appears to be legal according to the IRS 501 (c)(3) document.
However, what do we issue our Staff ( 3 members ) without the EIN number at the end of the year?
We can't issue W-2's or 1099's if I understand correctly.
1 staff member states his tax guy fills out a W-2 and the other 2 state their tax guys do 1099's. I'm confused and would appreciate any help.
Thanks in advance.
