Can a 1099-MISC not list an EIN or other number? Mine doesn't have any number like that. How do I get one? Do I need one?

A 1099-MISC form is not complete without an EIN number.  On the 1099-MISC, the EIN may be titled "Payer's TIN".  This number usually  appears under the payer's address.  

If your 1099-MISC is missing the EIN, you will need to enter the income as if you did not receive a 1099-MISC.  There is a screen titled "Enter Business Income That's Not on a 1099-MISC" where you will enter this amount within the Business income and expenses (Sch C) income section.
