If you work as a self-employed individual, you’ll be asked to fill out the Request for Raxpayer Identification Number and Certification in case any client pays you $600 and more during the year. Before you’ll upload a completed document to the email attachment and send it to the requester you first have to find a blank to fill.
How to download the free form online?
There are a few places where to get a W-9:
|Where to find the blank?||What do you receive?|
|OnIRS official website||Free PDF.|
|In the inquiry letter attachment||Only the document to fill|
|On our partners||The latest blank and the ability to fill it online with digital signature.|
We also have printable W-9, in case you need to send a hard copy to the requester.
How often to issue a new form?
You don’t have to complete a new document frequently. Actually, you should do it only if any crucial data changes or in case the requester asks you for that. Make sure you provide all the data required, including name, address, entity type, W-9 form exemptions (if any) and TIN.
