IRS Form W-9 is used by payers to request the correct Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) from independent contractors/vendors. With this, payers can e-file 1099s with the IRS to report the income paid for the tax year. 

If you are a payer, you need to request W-9 and get the correct details from an independent contractor/vendor. To help you with that, TaxBandits is providing paper-free and online W-9s for free this November. To send the W-9 request now, follow the instructions below.

  • Sign up with TaxBandits.
  • Click on Start New Form and select Form W-9
  • Enter the name and email address of the recipients one by one. 
  • Click on the Send W-9 Request
  • W-9 requests will be sent to the recipients through email.

After receiving the requests, your vendors will fill in the details and e-sign & submit it. Once they submit their W9s, we will notify you via email. After that, you can proceed to e-file 1099s at TaxBandits. 

If you are an independent contractor/vendor receiving W-9, you have to complete and e-sign W-9 and send it back to the payer. While completing the W-9, make sure you provide a correct TIN and certification. Your payer will file 1099 for you only with the information you provide.
