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.
