Somebody knows the DDI taxpayers TIN

Was that meant to be a statement or a question?   There was no question mark.  Do you have a question for the user community forum?   Are you asking if someone knows a company's TIN/EIN?


If you need an employer/contractor's TIN/EIN, you need to ask the employer/contractor directly or their payroll/human resources department--not random folks in a user community forum.   Plus "DDI" can stand for a lot of different things.


It looks like you are self-employed, based on the product indicated below your question.  If you paid a person/entity in the course of your business and need their TIN so you can file an information return, you can request their TIN by asking them to fill out a Form W-9 to give to you.


You appear to be using the Live Self-Employed Edition.   If you need additional help, you should take advantage of the "Live" portion of your product for which you are paying extra.   That product includes live on-demand help from a CPA/EA tax expert during return preparation, and a review of your return prior to filing, if desired.
