ABOUT MORTGAGE CLAIM CENTER OUTREACH WHO WE ARE: Mortgage Claim Center Outreach is a Washington Registered non-profit corporation. We are an independent, non-profit organization, not affiliated with any bank, real-estate broker, mortgage broker, debt collector or government agency. We do not provide loan modifications, assist with short sales or provide foreclosure relief. MCCO MISSION STATEMENT: Our mission is to help homeowners preserve homeownership and assert their right to protect their assets. We do this through a forensic loan investigation helping preserve a homeowner’s claim with regard to their property. HOW WE GOT STARTED: Mortgage Claim Center Outreach’s mission carries forward decades of experience of TopExperts in the mortgage, real estate, and legal industries. In addition our experience includes real estate investors whose investments have taken them to a peak in 2007 and a subsequent economy crash in 2008, when mortgage funding became generally unavailable. Through changes in the real estate market and a downturn on Wall Street, many of our staff have personally learned the reality of foreclosure as many of the properties previously purchased at foreclosure auction found their way back on the auction block. In the process of losing homes to foreclosure many of our staff have learned more from experience about why so many foreclosures were happening nationwide, and how an industry that, over a 15 year period, created more millionaires than all other industries combined, could go so wrong. For more information regarding Securitization, Mortgage Fraud, and the other relevant topics, read the posts, and watch the videos located at With the information gained through the priceless experience of losing so much, our experienced staff, through co-op, has been able to discover the secret to stopping foreclosure in its tracks. Through the use of the techniques and tools utilized exclusively by Mortgage Claim Center Outreach, our staff has been able to field test, and prove effectiveness by getting State and Federal Courts to agree that many homes are protected and exempt from sale or foreclosure by any other parties alleging the right to the homes. Many of our staff are clients and still retain their homes today, without fear of foreclosure ever again, and continue to offer their assistance to homeowners all over the nation that are privileged to share the same outcome of remaining in their homes indefinitely. WHAT “THE SOLUTION” CONSISTS OF: A. MCCO CONDUCTS A FORENSIC LOAN INVESTIGATION: 1. TILA/Disclosure/Appraisal/Public Records/Securitization Audit: We provide an extensive investigation into the truth regarding a homeowners “loan” documents/transaction, and includes information indicating whether or not the transaction should have been done in the first place and other elements of fraud. In addition we find out whether or not numbers were inflated, figures were manipulated or other improper processes took place in the appraisal and related documents. This is only a partial list of criteria that we scrutinize for each situation. We discover the truth of the matter and establish it as evidence in the form of an affidavit creating the prima facie case.

We often discover the following and much more: • • • • • the identity of the securitization trust all parties involved the insurers and policies for said parties evidence that the mortgage is unenforceable evidence that the foreclosing party has no right to do so

Certified Forensic Loan Investigators for Mortgage Claim Center research, review, investigate, and verify the alleged “Loan Documents” submitted, along with comprehensive searches that include Federal and State public database records of:      County(Recorder/Auditor/Tax Assessor/Clerk) SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION BUREAU OF LAND MANAGEMENT SECRETARY OF STATE And other relevant proprietary public data sources.

Through supplemental Forensic Searches, the investigator has incorporated into the results of their investigation the data reported from the Securitization Trustee of record for the referenced SPV investment vehicle that is identified to have received the alleged “mortgage loan” in its pools. We Investigate and research to Identify and compare:          Root of title Paramount Title Claimant Alleged Loan Originating Lender Alleged Beneficiary Alleged Originating Trustee Current Servicer Special Purpose Vehicle Deal Name Securitization Trustee Depositor

Mortgage Claim Center Investigators are not attorneys, and as such, nothing in the investigation shall constitute legal advice or legal opinions. The investigation is provided to support diligent discovery, interrogatories, and a concise assessment of damages, and other claims for the hands of a licensed legal professional. 1. While further details should be sought through discovery, evidence indicates that Federal taxpayer bailout money may have been directly used toward the reimbursement of any successors in interest, eliminating any alleged debt obligation that if rights of enforcement of the obligation, were subrogated, it would have been to the Taxpayer. While many seek the identity of the “Owner” of the “Loan Documents”, evidence indicates that this is not possible, that many claims of ownership are merely claims to contracted “Servicing Rights” of a “paid-off-in-full” obligation. It is interesting to note that many “Underwriting Agreements” for SPV investment vehicles like that described above include for example a “Mortgage Trust Bulk Supplemental Policy” which have provisions that state inter alia:




LOAN MODIFICATION PROHIBITION “Loan Modifications” – “Unless advance approval is provided by, or obtained from, the Company, the Insured may not make any change in the terms of a Loan including the borrowed amount, interest rate term, or amortization schedule of the loan except as such change is permitted by the terms of the Loan without the approval of the Insured; not make any change in the property or other collateral securing the loan nor release the borrower from liability on a loan.” i. You cannot modify a loan that has been paid off and terminated in full. Thus the prohibition.


UNSECURED MORTGAGE BALANCES “If a Default occurs on the Loan, the Insured has acquired Good and Merchantable Title to the Property as required by this policy, and all other requirements for filing of a claim are complied with, the Insured will be entitled to include in the Claim Amount (a) the amount of the principal balance of the Loan which was deemed unsecured under applicable insolvency or bankruptcy law…” i. i.e. “foreclose on a property without the lawful right to, and we will still pay the insurance to you.”


LAWFUL RELEASE OF OBLIGATION “Release of Borrower; Defenses of Borrower” - …”If, under applicable law, the Borrower successfully asserts defenses which have the effect of releasing, in whole or in part, the Borrower’s obligation to repay the loan, or if for any reason the Borrower is released from such obligation, the Company will be released to the same extent and amount from its liability under this policy…” i. Beat them at their own game, and you win, they lose!

B. WE CONDUCT A SEARCH FOR THE ROOT OF TITLE: We discover the root and origin of land title stemming from an international treaty, land grant, homestead grant or land patent, enabling the land owner to accept the federal protections provided by these original archived instruments and preserving their land ownership rights long term by establishing the most superior claim available. C. WE PROVIDE A COMPREHENSIVE REPORT (AFFIDAVIT OF INVESTIGATOR): At the end of the investigation we provide a comprehensive report to the homeowner reflecting the findings of the Forensic Loan Investigation and we provide a certified copy from the Federal Government of the original land grant or patent. This report is compiled by a certified investigator and comprises the evidence supporting the facts of the matter, admissible in court establishing the prima facie case. PROGRAM GUARANTEES: We are proud to offer a 100% money back guarantee if the results of the investigation reveal no claim for the homeowner to pursue. Our service helps homeowners abate proceedings, providing for effective protection of assets. While we cannot guarantee any specific outcome of your case, we do guarantee that we will do our best to assist you in preventing foreclosure by giving you the evidence you need to beat the bank in court with or without the assistance of an attorney.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE? The investigation is completed within 30 days, from the time we receive all documents/payment, until we deliver the final investigation report to you. *Tip: One little known fact is that there are MULTIPLE insurance policies in effect for securitized loans, with many of the beneficiaries of said policies having nothing to do with the transaction. [These policies are not dissimilar to an automobile liability insurance policy. When a car accident takes place an insurance settlement is paid out in accordance with the terms of the coverage of the policy to the beneficiaries of the policy. No car accident = no payout of settlement $. Conversely, NO FORECLOSURE AUCTION = NO SETTLEMENT PAYOUT]. The multiple policies in effect often payout 7-10 times the original value of the mortgage note! (The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the one). Many believe that these policies are the only thing propping up the U.S. economy at this time. The beneficiaries of these policies, often times, include municipalities and pension funds held by judges, states, and counties, that explain why many fraudulent foreclosures are allowed by our court system to continue. Our Forensic Loan Investigation is especially appropriate for homeowners who have already lost their home to assist in seeking damages!

Memorandum re: Data Collection, Integrity and Quality Assurance Procedures Mortgage Claim Center investigates and provides forensic evidence and data with quality unmatched by any other source of loan level data in the world. To accomplish this, Collection and Quality Assurance procedures have been put in place to ensure integrity. Accurate data starts with ensuring that effective mapping and processing techniques are in place in order to eliminate manual intervention and provide clients with normalized data across myriad sources. • Upfront Mapping: o Core loan level data from all sources are mapped to our data model o The appropriate mapping definitions are specified by Sr. Business Experts with significant industry experience o Applicable conversions, normalizations and calculations are included as part of the mapping code logic. Data Processing: o Data is received electronically from various sources (TXT, XLS or through PDF scraping technology) o Updated files are loaded through automated sourcing programs

A variety of automated quality assurance procedures are executed on the Loan data monthly prior to release to our database: • Automated Queries: Loan data undergoes myriad automated queries to look for potential source data problems in the aggregate including validation of loan counts, changes in balance, etc. These queries flag possible issues, which are then reviewed, researched and addressed by Sr. Experts prior to release to the database. Automated Range Checks: Individual loans are automatically reviewed to ensure fields fall within plausible ranges (e.g. FICO less than 850, Coupon within valid range, etc) Auditors review any suspect loans and determine based on the appropriate research whether the outlier is valid or an error. If the latter, the value is either corrected at the source, flagged as an issue or put as a null for the questionable period. Loan to Pool Reconciliation: Identifying which pool contains a specific loan depends upon the aggregated pool level data reported by trustees in database format. Our investigation reconciles key loan level variables to their counterparts on the trustee remittance reports and flags any outlying data.

Qualified Written Request: A “QWR” is made pursuant to the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (12 U.S.C. § 26012617) otherwise known as RESPA and its implementing regulation X (24 C.F.R. § 3500.21) and is an important communication tool by which the consumer can put the servicer on notice that there is a problem if there is an error in the mortgage account. There are specific guidelines as to how a QWR needs to be written and filed and what it contains: the request must be in writing, identify the borrower by name and account, and include a statement of reasons why the borrower believes the account is in error. The servicer must acknowledge receipt of the request within 20 days. Failure by the bank to respond is a violation of Federal law activating statutory penalties. We are requesting an accounting of everything. We are demanding for it to be certified under oath. The servicer then has 60 days from the date of request to take action to either provide a written notification that the error has been corrected, or provide a written explanation as to why the servicer believes the account is correct. Either way, the servicer has to provide the name and telephone number of a person with whom the borrower can discuss the matter. The servicer cannot provide information to any credit agency regarding any overdue payment during the 60-day period. If the servicer fails to comply with the “QWR", the borrower is entitled to actual damages, and $1000’s of additional damages if there is a pattern of noncompliance, costs and attorney fees. Commercial Fixture Lien Notice: This document is an affidavit of obligation. It states that the Homeowner is the creditor and that the vested interest in the real estate is owed to said Homeowner. This document is a lien against the property in the amount of the vested interest in the property and it identifies the surety/collateral as the property itself. This includes each and every fixture including the carpeting, appliances, the cooling ventilation system, etc. This document also lists some maxims and basic doctrines of law (truths of law) about unrebutted affidavits and reciting the rules to the game. Fair Warning No Trespass Fee Schedule: This document is a public notice that provides more definitions, but goes into detail with respect to no trespassing features. The fee schedule states that if any party commits unlawful entry, unlawful detainer, or trespass, there is a $150,000 fee for that, and there is also a $5,000 document review fee per document. There is also a $10,000 appearance fee for required appearances. So if the grantor is sent a set of documents for their review, the homeowner may bill them $5000 for that. If they get brought into court, the grantor may charge $10,000. It states that service will be enforced to the fullest extent of law and all orders may cause a bill to be issued and all sales are final (to put a stop to any rebuttals). Attachments for the Bank to fill out if it wishes to prove up it’s claim: 1) IRS Form 4490: is a proof of claim form; agent must swear to this and have their signature notarized. 2) IRS W9 From: gives us the opportunity to identify a party by either social security number, tax payer or employer identification number so we know who we are dealing with, and whether they are an individual or a corporation or other entity. It is simply a way of asking for proof of identification. 3) Freddie Mac Form: provides for a 1099-A filing. We are providing another opportunity for parties to certify under penalty of perjury that they have examined this return and the accompanying documents and what they are saying is true and sign on the dotted line to that effect.

To Respondents/Recipients: Re: Loan number:______________________ Alleged Borrower Name:_________________________________ This demand is a "Qualified Written Request" pursuant to the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act, 12 U.S.C. Section 2605(e) in a pre-suit attempt to mitigate the situation and avoid legal action and litigation in this matter. Under Section 6 of RESPA you are also required to acknowledge this request within 20 business days and must provide the information demanded within 60 business days to avoid assessment of damages. The purpose of this demand affidavit is to inquire about the accounting and servicing of my mortgage and my need for understanding and clarification of various charges, credits, debits, transactions, reversals, actions, payments, analyses and records related to the servicing of my loan from its origination to the present date. This request is also pursuant to Uniform Commercial Code 9-210, Request for accounting; request regarding list of collateral or statement of account. The Onus Probandi of Proof of Claim is upon the respondent who may be seeking affirmative relief in the form of actions including but not limited to foreclosure and collection of debt. The Truth In Lending Act (specifically 15 U.S.C. § 1641(f)(2) states (in pertinent part): “Upon written request by the obligor, the servicer shall provide the obligor, to the best knowledge of the servicer, with the name, address, and telephone number of the owner of the obligation or the master servicer of the obligation.” The servicing lender’s response is also required to provide “the name and telephone number of an individual employed by, or the office or department of, the servicer who can provide assistance to the borrower” [12 U.S.C. § 2605(e)(2)]. This correspondence is a formal written request for you to provide such. To date, the documents and information I have, along with what you have sent me, and the conversations with your service representatives have failed to answer my questions. To independently validate my debt, I need to conduct a complete exam, audit, review and accounting of my mortgage loan from its inception through the present date. Upon receipt of this letter, please refrain from reporting any “alleged” negative credit information to any credit reporting agency until you provide evidence in response to each of my requests and provide time for me to respond. Do not rely on records, assurances or indemnity agreements of previous or current servicers or originators. Instead you must conduct a full audit and investigation of the subject account. ALL RESPONSES MUST BE SIGNED BY AN AUTHORIZED CORPORATE REPRESENTATIVE, UNDER OATH, HAVING PERSONAL KNOWLEDGE, RECALL/RECOLLECTION, SWORN COMPETENT TO TESTIFY, WITH ABILITY TO COMMUNICATE RELEVANT INFORMATION, IN THEIR UNLIMITED COMMERCIAL LIABILITY AS TO THE AUTHENTICITY AND ACCURACY OF THE CONTENTS. FAILURE TO RESPOND POINT FOR POINT SHALL CONSTITUTE A NON-RESPONSE, AND SHALL STIPULATE YOUR AGREEMENT TO THE FACTS AS PRESENTED HEREIN.

Having contracted a third party forensic loan auditing/investigation company to assist me in this matter, you are demanded to provide:
(1) A summary of the loan history including all payments made, all fees incurred, balance of suspense accounts, proceeds paid out of escrow account(s), and the identification of all parties who have received beneficial interest payments in the loan referenced. This information should cover the entire life of the loan.

Page 1 of 4

(If incorrect state affirmatively by providing the correct spelling of said Holder in Due Course and its address for correspondence.) (4) Respondent agrees they are merely a Servicer, or Debt Collector with no rights of a Holder, or Holder in Due Course. (5) Respondent agrees Maker/Issuer deposited a Promissory Note Negotiable Instrument with Originating Lender. (6) Respondent agrees and accepts as truth “Modern Money Mechanics” published in 1992 by the FEDERAL RESERVE BANK OF CHICAGO, that states in pertinent part: “Any deposit received is new money, regardless of its ultimate source.” (page 8) “Of course, they [banks] do not really pay out loans from the money they receive as deposits. If they did this, no additional money would be created. What they do is to accept promissory notes in exchange for credits to the borrowers’ transaction accounts.” (page 6) “These receipts, which became known as notes, were acceptable as money since whoever held them could go to the banker and exchange them for metallic money.” … “Checkable liabilities of banks are money. These liabilities are customers’ accounts” (page 3) (7) Respondent agrees that in order to have balanced books in accounting, for every asset, there must be a corresponding liability entered, via deposit account opened in the Maker/Issuer name that was not disclosed by making false presumptions authorized by UCC 1-201.31 that the Maker/Issuer would subordinate his paramount claim of ownership as Maker/Issuer, would abandon the note and deposit, has no intention of using deposit to pay off loan. (8) Respondent agrees that Maker/Issuer of the Negotiable Instrument was never given a receipt for the deposit of such, nor was disclosure made about the true nature of this transaction as an exchange, and not a loan. (9) Respondent agrees in accordance with public policy, the issuance of a Money Order in lieu of Federal Reserve Notes for payment discharges this debt dollar for dollar.

General Instructions
Section references are to the Internal Revenue Code unless otherwise noted.

Purpose of Form
A person who is required to file an information return with the IRS must obtain your correct taxpayer identification number (TIN) to report, for example, income paid to you, real estate transactions, mortgage interest you paid, acquisition or abandonment of secured property, cancellation of debt, or contributions you made to an IRA. Use Form W-9 only if you are a U.S. person (including a resident alien), to provide your correct TIN to the person requesting it (the requester) and, when applicable, to: 1. Certify that the TIN you are giving is correct (or you are waiting for a number to be issued), 2. Certify that you are not subject to backup withholding, or 3. Claim exemption from backup withholding if you are a U.S. exempt payee. If applicable, you are also certifying that as a U.S. person, your allocable share of any partnership income from a U.S. trade or business is not subject to the withholding tax on foreign partners’ share of effectively connected income.

Note. If a requester gives you a form other than Form W-9 to request your TIN, you must use the requester’s form if it is substantially similar to this Form W-9. Definition of a U.S. person. For federal tax purposes, you are considered a U.S. person if you are: • An individual who is a U.S. citizen or U.S. resident alien, • A partnership, corporation, company, or association created or organized in the United States or under the laws of the United States, • An estate (other than a foreign estate), or • A domestic trust (as defined in Regulations section 301.7701-7). Special rules for partnerships. Partnerships that conduct a trade or business in the United States are generally required to pay a withholding tax on any foreign partners’ share of income from such business. Further, in certain cases where a Form W-9 has not been received, a partnership is required to presume that a partner is a foreign person, and pay the withholding tax. Therefore, if you are a U.S. person that is a partner in a partnership conducting a trade or business in the United States, provide Form W-9 to the partnership to establish your U.S. status and avoid withholding on your share of partnership income.

Cat. No. 10231X

Form W-9 (Rev. 1-2011)

Form W-9


Page 2

The person who gives Form W-9 to the partnership for purposes of establishing its U.S. status and avoiding withholding on its allocable share of net income from the partnership conducting a trade or business in the United States is in the following cases: • The U.S. owner of a disregarded entity and not the entity, • The U.S. grantor or other owner of a grantor trust and not the trust, and • The U.S. trust (other than a grantor trust) and not the beneficiaries of the trust. Foreign person. If you are a foreign person, do not use Form W-9. Instead, use the appropriate Form W-8 (see Publication 515, Withholding of Tax on Nonresident Aliens and Foreign Entities). Nonresident alien who becomes a resident alien. Generally, only a nonresident alien individual may use the terms of a tax treaty to reduce or eliminate U.S. tax on certain types of income. However, most tax treaties contain a provision known as a “saving clause.” Exceptions specified in the saving clause may permit an exemption from tax to continue for certain types of income even after the payee has otherwise become a U.S. resident alien for tax purposes. If you are a U.S. resident alien who is relying on an exception contained in the saving clause of a tax treaty to claim an exemption from U.S. tax on certain types of income, you must attach a statement to Form W-9 that specifies the following five items: 1. The treaty country. Generally, this must be the same treaty under which you claimed exemption from tax as a nonresident alien. 2. The treaty article addressing the income. 3. The article number (or location) in the tax treaty that contains the saving clause and its exceptions. 4. The type and amount of income that qualifies for the exemption from tax. 5. Sufficient facts to justify the exemption from tax under the terms of the treaty article. Example. Article 20 of the U.S.-China income tax treaty allows an exemption from tax for scholarship income received by a Chinese student temporarily present in the United States. Under U.S. law, this student will become a resident alien for tax purposes if his or her stay in the United States exceeds 5 calendar years. However, paragraph 2 of the first Protocol to the U.S.-China treaty (dated April 30, 1984) allows the provisions of Article 20 to continue to apply even after the Chinese student becomes a resident alien of the United States. A Chinese student who qualifies for this exception (under paragraph 2 of the first protocol) and is relying on this exception to claim an exemption from tax on his or her scholarship or fellowship income would attach to Form W-9 a statement that includes the information described above to support that exemption. If you are a nonresident alien or a foreign entity not subject to backup withholding, give the requester the appropriate completed Form W-8. What is backup withholding? Persons making certain payments to you must under certain conditions withhold and pay to the IRS a percentage of such payments. This is called “backup withholding.” Payments that may be subject to backup withholding include interest, tax-exempt interest, dividends, broker and barter exchange transactions, rents, royalties, nonemployee pay, and certain payments from fishing boat operators. Real estate transactions are not subject to backup withholding. You will not be subject to backup withholding on payments you receive if you give the requester your correct TIN, make the proper certifications, and report all your taxable interest and dividends on your tax return.

Certain payees and payments are exempt from backup withholding. See the instructions below and the separate Instructions for the Requester of Form W-9. Also see Special rules for partnerships on page 1.

Updating Your Information
You must provide updated information to any person to whom you claimed to be an exempt payee if you are no longer an exempt payee and anticipate receiving reportable payments in the future from this person. For example, you may need to provide updated information if you are a C corporation that elects to be an S corporation, or if you no longer are tax exempt. In addition, you must furnish a new Form W-9 if the name or TIN changes for the account, for example, if the grantor of a grantor trust dies.

Failure to furnish TIN. If you fail to furnish your correct TIN to a requester, you are subject to a penalty of $50 for each such failure unless your failure is due to reasonable cause and not to willful neglect. Civil penalty for false information with respect to withholding. If you make a false statement with no reasonable basis that results in no backup withholding, you are subject to a $500 penalty. Criminal penalty for falsifying information. Willfully falsifying certifications or affirmations may subject you to criminal penalties including fines and/or imprisonment. Misuse of TINs. If the requester discloses or uses TINs in violation of federal law, the requester may be subject to civil and criminal penalties.

Specific Instructions
If you are an individual, you must generally enter the name shown on your income tax return. However, if you have changed your last name, for instance, due to marriage without informing the Social Security Administration of the name change, enter your first name, the last name shown on your social security card, and your new last name. If the account is in joint names, list first, and then circle, the name of the person or entity whose number you entered in Part I of the form. Sole proprietor. Enter your individual name as shown on your income tax return on the “Name” line. You may enter your business, trade, or “doing business as (DBA)” name on the “Business name/disregarded entity name” line. Partnership, C Corporation, or S Corporation. Enter the entity's name on the “Name” line and any business, trade, or “doing business as (DBA) name” on the “Business name/disregarded entity name” line. Disregarded entity. Enter the owner's name on the “Name” line. The name of the entity entered on the “Name” line should never be a disregarded entity. The name on the “Name” line must be the name shown on the income tax return on which the income will be reported. For example, if a foreign LLC that is treated as a disregarded entity for U.S. federal tax purposes has a domestic owner, the domestic owner's name is required to be provided on the “Name” line. If the direct owner of the entity is also a disregarded entity, enter the first owner that is not disregarded for federal tax purposes. Enter the disregarded entity's name on the “Business name/disregarded entity name” line. If the owner of the disregarded entity is a foreign person, you must complete an appropriate Form W-8. Note. Check the appropriate box for the federal tax classification of the person whose name is entered on the “Name” line (Individual/sole proprietor, Partnership, C Corporation, S Corporation, Trust/estate). Limited Liability Company (LLC). If the person identified on the “Name” line is an LLC, check the “Limited liability company” box only and enter the appropriate code for the tax classification in the space provided.

The IRS tells the requester that you furnished an incorrect TIN, 4. The IRS tells you that you are subject to backup withholding because you did not report all your interest and dividends on your tax return (for reportable interest and dividends only), or 5.

Part I. Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN)
Enter your TIN in the appropriate box. If you are a resident alien and you do not have and are not eligible to get an SSN, your TIN is your IRS individual taxpayer identification number (ITIN). Enter it in the social security number box. If you do not have an ITIN, see How to get a TIN below. If you are a sole proprietor and you have an EIN, you may enter either your SSN or EIN. However, the IRS prefers that you use your SSN. If you are a single-member LLC that is disregarded as an entity separate from its owner (see Limited Liability Company (LLC) on page 2), enter the owner’s SSN (or EIN, if the owner has one). Do not enter the disregarded entity’s EIN. If the LLC is classified as a corporation or partnership, enter the entity’s EIN. Note. See the chart on page 4 for further clarification of name and TIN combinations. How to get a TIN. If you do not have a TIN, apply for one immediately. To apply for an SSN, get Form SS-5, Application for a Social Security Card, from your local Social Security Administration office or get this form online at You may also get this form by calling 1-800-772-1213. Use Form W-7, Application for IRS Individual Taxpayer Identification Number, to apply for an ITIN, or Form SS-4, Application for Employer Identification Number, to apply for an EIN. You can apply for an EIN online by accessing the IRS website at and clicking on Employer Identification Number (EIN) under Starting a Business. You can get Forms W-7 and SS-4 from the IRS by visiting or by calling 1-800-TAX-FORM (1-800-829-3676). If you are asked to complete Form W-9 but do not have a TIN, write “Applied For” in the space for the TIN, sign and date the form, and give it to the requester. For interest and dividend payments, and certain payments made with respect to readily tradable instruments, generally you will have 60 days to get a TIN and give it to the requester before you are subject to backup withholding on payments. The 60-day rule does not apply to other types of payments. You will be subject to backup withholding on all such payments until you provide your TIN to the requester. Note. Entering “Applied For” means that you have already applied for a TIN or that you intend to apply for one soon. Caution: A disregarded domestic entity that has a foreign owner must use the appropriate Form W-8.
