I recently received a letter from my credit union regarding my Taxpayer Identification Number aka Social Security Number that I used for my trust account. They said that the IRS sent them notification that the TIN # did not match its records. This sent me in to a tailspin. All information on the internet and the credit union told me to use one of our SS# as TIN for trust. What's was going on. A call to a rep said no worries and said that they get random batch letters from IRS and they just want a back up form saying the same thing that I filled out when opening account. Does anybody know anything about this practice. And am I doing the right thing using our SS# for the TIN for the trust account.

It's complicated. Best to consult with your CPA. Some trustees can report trust income under their SSNs, and some cannot. In our family trust, as a successor trustee, I needed to obtain a Trust TIN. Before she died, my Mom just used her SSN.

So they just withdrew money out of my account for irs withholding. I don't understand why. I called them up and it was after hours and rep said irs sent letter telling to withhold money. I don't understand why. It's not even that much money. And we pay our taxes. We don't have any weird stuff going.
