rule
Enter on line D the employer identification number (EIN) that was issued to you on Form SS-4. Do not enter your SSN. Do not enter another taxpayer's EIN (for example, from any Forms 1099-MISC that you received). If you do not have an EIN, leave line D blank.

However, you should enter on line D only the EIN issued to you and in your name as the sole proprietor of your farming business. If you do not have such an EIN, leave line D blank. Do not enter on line D the EIN issued to the LLC.
