I live in Morocco and I recently ordered an EIN number from the IRS because I work in Envato Market and because we have an income tax treaty with the US of a (10%). Meaning that, If someone from the US buys one of my items, the IRS takes 10% instead of 30%.
The IRS gave me my EIN number and it works fine. Even though I haven't received a confirmation letter in the mail. So, my question is, how do they know that I really live in Morocco without any confirmation from me? What if someone from Egypt for an example called them pretending he's from France and asked for an EIN number!
I know that this is a dumb question! But I was just wondering what could happen to my registration with the IRS since I still haven't received that confirmation letter in the mail and is it that important?
Thank you in advance!
