a partnership, use the registered partnership name. A sole proprietor must
use the name of the individual owner.

below that check box.
Note: If you wish to change the address for more than one tax type, and
the address is different for each tax type, you must either attach another
Form DTF-96 for each additional tax type or, using the same format, create
and attach a separate listing that contains all the address information, the
tax type(s) for that address, and your identification number.
