Technically being born in the US (I assume you are) then you are a resident. I assume you mean you have not recieved your social security number which simply allows you to work full time (I live in the UK and we get the equivelant at 16 not 18, unless its different over there I would be worried). This might be the number needed, I'm not 100% sure on that.

I'm from germany so take this info with a grain of salt.

The VAT number (Value added tax) is given to businesses by the financial authority of your state. So in order to have a vat number you need to register a business. However, here in germany there is a special case for small businesses where you can opt out of the vat deduction process. I don't know if something like that is possible in the states. Furthermore, I don't know if you can actually register with the asset store without providing your vat number.
