If you live in the United States, you may not open a business without a social security number. Without one, you cannot open a bank account, fill out the proper paperwork with the local, state and federal offices, receive credit from any other businesses, etc...

Default Amish

As a matter of interest, it is my understanding that self-employed Amish do not pay Social Security tax. Those Amish employed by non-Amish employers do pay Social Security tax. The Amish do pay real estate, state and federal income taxes, county taxes, sales tax, etc.

Unless you're only visiting the US, you can't even be in the US without an SS#, let alone start a legitimate business.

Im a European and often i come to USA as a tourist with a tourist visa,i dont have a green card or ssn. I opened a bank account in Chase Florida,in bank of America and in california few years back also. So it is not true that a person can not open a bank account without a social security number.

Default Open a business without social security

You cannot open a business if you do not have a social security number. Social Security Numbers are the United States way of counting and recognizing its citizens. If you are without a number you are not a citizen of the United States.

Without an SSID, you will not be able to trade in US, as there are a lot of places, where they turn out to be an important piece of information.
