W-9 Request for Taxpayer ID number

W-9 forms are used so that you can confirm the taxpayer ID number of your vendors - so that, if required, you can file 1099-MISC forms. These forms are not required - but are one of the ways businesses show that they have requested a tax ID number. Your suppliers may also ask you to complete a W-9 form.

Here is the W-9 form
About 1099-MISC forms: 1099-MISC forms are required for any non-corporation who provides services and are paid $600 or more during one year - or any company that sells you $5000 or more in products in one year. For more information about 1099M requirements, click here.
