So anyway, I had a deal for the following picture.

I would receive 50 dollars for it. I mailed them the invoice, and communication was steady and professional. Then I get the following email -

Mr. Kroychik,

The check for $50.00 for usage of your image is being issued today. I just
received word that in order to do so, accounting will need your Federal Tax
ID number.

Ok, this seems a bit fishy. And can anyone tell me where I can find Federal Tax ID number? I have no idea what it is and why they need to use it.


Money does not bring you happiness. But it's better to cry in your own private limo than on a cold bus stop.

or you can give them your SS Number. It isn't fishy, they just have to show the payment on their books. Don't email the info, however (not secure). Call them with it.

They just need your social secuirty number so that they can record payment...they must file a form with the IRS (just like when a pay check is issued...)

If you make enough of photos then you need to declare it as income on your 1040....
