Why would you put an EIN in the Preparer Information?

It makes sense why I would put a SSN as I am the individual physically preparing it, but the firm is the one that employs me. I just want to make sure that I am doing this properly.

Because you are not self employed and work for the firm is why you need the EIN.

What if the 1099-MISC is from an individual with a SSN and not an EIN? Where can that be entered since the program requires an EIN?

You don't need to enter a 1099-MISC into the software.  They don't get transmitted with the return and are just excess baggage.  Just enter a total into schedule C.

Huh ?
I think you need to start a new thread, as your question has nothing to do with this 3 month old post.
