What is the W-9 Tax Form?

Tax season brings many challenges and headaches each year. The stress comes to an end on April 15th, but until then, we have to complete our tax forms, calculate taxes and fill in financial declarations. No matter how much money you’ve made during the year, you still have to inform the IRS of your income.

Working as an independent contractor, freelancer or sole proprietor has lots of benefits. Imagine that you don’t have to go to work every day. You can plan your day as you wish. But still you must fill out tax return forms. If you’ve received money from another sole proprietor or company, you’ll definitely receive IRS form W-9 to complete. This form is a Request for Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN). It is sent by the HR managers of large companies or individuals to their employees who received payments for services provided.

W-9 form is not sent to the IRS. The information in the form is essential for filling out other IRS tax forms, such as Form 1099 and Form 1099-MISC. While completing these returns, the preparer needs to know your Taxpayer Identification Number.  

Form W-9 also serves to certify that your income taxes are exempt from backup withholding. If you complete the request accurately and fully, you can count on an exemption.

Now you know what W-9 is all about and it’s time to start filling it out.
