Question by Robert Paulson: Can you have a business bank account and use a pseudo name?
I want to start an online business, but I would like to keep my identity private from the organizations I will be doing the business with I was wondering if this was possible.
I’m not looking to hide anything from the government, I just don’t want my name associated with the company and the users who buy.
Ok. I’m thinking of making an adult videos website, but I’m not sure I want the whole world knowing that I’m the “genius” behind it.

Absolutely not! The federal government won’t allow it, since you’ll have to pay taxes on your interest earned. How would the IRS know who owed the taxes if you were anonymous?

You say you don’t want your name associated with the company. Unfortunately, somebody’s name has to be. If not yours, then whose?
