for the time being that you are operating as an extension of yourself. You will not need a EIN, for that. I would suggest not incorporating until such time that you have membership. For my money the club would need to start to pay it’s own way before I would get concerned about incorporating it. Until that time the simplest way would to have the club be a “for profit” extension of yourself (operating in your name), and yes the expenses can be deducted. Good luck.
