Professional Q&As for "Is Tin The Same As Ein"

I am previewing the Voluntary Petition draft. Why on the second page does it mention business names I've had in the last 8 years, when Upsolve's form only asked for the last 4 years? (I do have a business I've had in the last 8 years, but not the last 4)

Michelle, thanks so much for asking! I took a look but it does look like the software asks for the past 8 years. If you need to update your answers, feel free to re-do the "About You" section.

Thank you! I looked back at my tax information and I won't need to include that business (it was in my name and my own social security as TIN anyway). However I'm not sure if what's currently on the draft (A Place for Rover) needs to be there. I did a lot of work as Independent Contractor / Gig and the draft doesn't list any of those even though I listed them in the business section. A Place for Rover is Independent Contractor work (somebody else's business that I am not an employee of, but do work through as a self business). Do you have maybe an idea about that?

Upsolve Community Member
And thanks Claire you are really super helpful, throughout this process

Yes I think after checking everything over that A Place for Rover should not be listed as a Business Name, as it is a Sole Proprietorship. I would need help taking that off (as I don't know how it got on!)

    Upsolve is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that started in 2016. Our mission is to help low-income families who cannot afford lawyers file bankruptcy for free, using an online web app. Spun out of Harvard Law School, our team includes lawyers, engineers, and judges. We have world-class funders that include the U.S. government, former Google CEO Eric Schmidt, and leading foundations. It's one of the greatest civil rights injustices of our time that low-income families can’t access their basic rights when they can’t afford to pay for help. Combining direct services and advocacy, we’re fighting this injustice.

    To learn more, read why we started Upsolve in 2016, our reviews from past users, and our press coverage from places like the New York Times and Wall Street Journal.
