I remember coming across some posts a while back, but it's a process of getting ITIN so that one can get credit cards in the US. The process goes something like you create an amazon seller account, create some eBook, buy your eBook to generate some sales, and at the end of the year Amazon will send you some form, that you can use to give to the IRS to get an ITIN and also pay taxes. I think the Canadians were the one who pioneered this. Maybe some help from across the border?
I admit I need some circles-and-arrows help here. But pointers to the right resources or what to search for will be really helpful. Thanks!!!
