FAQ

I want to create a web app that enables users to sign up/in, fill out a form, and then fax it to a fax machine. How to difficult is this to develop?
Are you sending yourself the fax or are they able to send the fax anywhere?  The latter has already been done numerous times.  There are email to fax and fax to email applications that have been available for decades.  I'm pretty certain that converting email to fax into app or form submission to fax is pretty trivial. They convert faxes to PDF's in many of these apps IIRC so anywhere you could view a PDF you could get a fax.
Should I fill out the SS-4 by hand or in the computer when I apply for EIN by fax?
I would fill out the SS-4 online via the IRS website. It is an instantaneous response and you have your official letter within seconds.
Is it normal for your auto insurance to cancel on you for not filling out and faxing a random mailed questionnaire?
NORMAL?:If the questionnaire were truly "random", it would not seem normal for an insurance company to cancel a policy for not filling it out.On the other hand, if the questionnaire or communication from the company were regarding information that was material to your application for insurance, substantiating information on an application or an upcoming renewal, lack of a response could trigger a cancellation. RANDOM?:Though it may have been described as a "random" questionnaire, insurance companies typically operate in very systemic and calculated way. Questionnaires are usually sent as a matter of routine, triggered by time frames or some combination of other factors. To follow it with a cancellation/non-renewal however suggests the latter.Regardless, every company and state are different in their requirements. It is generally in your best interest to communicate quickly and honestly with your insurance company when asked for information. ASK WHY?:If you have any questions about "Why" they need the information, ask them. WHY is a fair question to ask. It might be that they don't need the information in which case you can pass. In cases where they do, they should be able to give you a reasonable explanation.Contact your agent or representative and see what's up and if there is some information that they truly need regarding your policy.
How do I fax out using a fax machine through efax?
There are many ways to send faxes via efax, and you can find the answer on their website.But you might want to try another services, as well, because I guess you'll find there much more options. Try out faxes co(dot)uk  and you'll see the difference.Some history? :)When Alexander Graham Bell (1847–1922) spoke the immortal words "Mr. Watson! Come here! I want to see you!" into his primitive telephone in March 1876, he became one of the founding fathers of the modern age of telecommunications. But just suppose for a moment that he'd wanted to send his colleague a picture instead of spoken words—how exactly would he have done it? Most people assume fax machines (which send documents down phone lines) are newer than the telephone lines they use, but the first fax (Alexander Bain's "chemical telegraph") was actually patented decades before the phone in the 1840s. Today, the Internet has largely made faxing obsolete, but many businesses still rely on trusty old fax technology. Let's take a closer look at how it works!faxes co.uk
Why don't schools teach children about taxes and bills and things that they will definitely need to know as adults to get by in life?
Departments of education and school districts always have to make decisions about what to include in their curriculum.  There are a lot of life skills that people need that aren't taught in school.  The question is should those skills be taught in schools?I teach high school, so I'll talk about that.  The typical high school curriculum is supposed to give students a broad-based education that prepares them to be citizens in a democracy and to be able to think critically.  For a democracy to work, we need educated, discerning citizens with the ability to make good decisions based on evidence and objective thought.  In theory, people who are well informed about history, culture, science, mathematics, etc., and are capable of critical, unbiased thinking, will have the tools to participate in a democracy and make good decisions for themselves and for society at large.  In addition to that, they should be learning how to be learners, how to do effective, basic research, and collaborate with other people.  If that happens, figuring out how to do procedural tasks in real life should not provide much of a challenge.  We can't possibly teach every necessary life skill people need, but we can help students become better at knowing how to acquire the skills they need.  Should we teach them how to change a tire when they can easily consult a book or search the internet to find step by step instructions for that?  Should we teach them how to balance a check book or teach them how to think mathematically and make sense of problems so that the simple task of balancing a check book (which requires simple arithmetic and the ability to enter numbers and words in columns and rows in obvious ways) is easy for them to figure out.  If we teach them to be good at critical thinking and have some problem solving skills they will be able to apply those overarching skills to all sorts of every day tasks that shouldn't be difficult for someone with decent cognitive ability  to figure out.  It's analogous to asking why a culinary school didn't teach its students the steps and ingredients to a specific recipe.  The school taught them about more general food preparation and food science skills so that they can figure out how to make a lot of specific recipes without much trouble.  They're also able to create their own recipes.So, do we want citizens with very specific skill sets that they need to get through day to day life or do we want citizens with critical thinking, problem solving, and other overarching cognitive skills that will allow them to easily acquire ANY simple, procedural skill they may come to need at any point in their lives?
