I have no EIN number but need to claim

Hi,

If you are self-employed and don't have (or pay) any employees with a W-2, you don't need an EIN. The program will automatically use your SSN to report your self-employment income.

You do not need the EINs or SSNs of the customers that pay you by cash or check and do not report those payments to you on a Form 1099-MISC,
