I'm a new business owner working under an EIN-Tax ID # but have also worked under my social security number. Can I combine them both on my taxes and if so, how?

Yes.  Assuming you are a sole proprietor filing a Schedule C (as most start up business file), your social security number will be on the Form 1040 for the Individual side of your income taxes.  However, when you set up your Business Profile for Schedule C, you can enter your EIN number.  The income paid to you using either your EIN or your SSN (Social Security Number) can both be combined on the same Schedule C for the business.

(That said, if you have elected to be taxed as an S-Corporation, my answer will be different.  If that is the case, please post below in the comments section.)

------------------------------------

You will still file a Schedule C as a self-employed person (unless a Corporation or Partnership).  The Schedule C will flow onto your individual income tax return (Form 1040) and be netted with other personal income and expenses.  

How to get to that area  While inside the software and working on your return, type Schedule C in the Search at the top of the screen (you may see a magnifying glass there).  There will be a popup that says Jump to Schedule C.  Select that to get to the general area. 

Follow through all the areas in the Business section of the TurboTax Home & Business software and it will provide you with a lot of assistance. You'll notice blue links that have more information and details about the particular sections that will be extremely helpful. 

When you set up your Business Profile, that is where you can enter your EIN. Then, when done with the Business Profile:

  • then, Business Income and Expenses
  •  select Edit next to your business (if it is there already)
  • scroll to Business Income

You will enter the total off ALL of your gross income received.  You will see a screen for 1099-MISC if you received one, if not Skip it. 

Also, there will be a screen after the 1099-MISC screen to enter other business income as General Income

Then, subtract off expenses such as credit card processing fees and other ordinary and necessary business expenses in following screens.

Just coming across this thread...I am taxed as an S-Corp, any way you can elaborate on that? Much appreciated!

Same as the guy above. I am taxed as an S-corp, but I want another EIN. Can I file everything under my original S-corp? Rather than having two sets of returns?
