One of our clients wants to give 1099s for his contractors, he gave us SSNs and TINs and names and addresses. One of the TINs starts with the letter T (T 000000000) is this a common thing (to have a TIN number starting with a letter)?

TINs not good for work anyway. Need SSN

TIN Tax Identification Number. All have nine digits, no letters. They can be an employer ID number or social security number. Make sure your client properly classifies contractors as contractors and employees as employees.

A TIN has 9 numbers, usually starting with a high number such as an 8 or 9. They are for people with a green card. SSN begin with numbers 5 or under.

My son's alleged SSN starts with a 6...who do I call to find out what he has been classified as?

The first three digits of a person's social security number are determined by the ZIP Code of the mailing address shown on the application for the social security number. It's been that way since 1973. This according to the SSA itself. I haven't checked it on Snopes.
