Form W-9 or Request for Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) requires employers/companies to report payments to non-employees/vendors for services rendered. These payments are reported annually to the IRS on form 1099. Tax identification numbers can be requested with the W-9 Form.
W-9 Form Instructions
To assist in gathering the vendor’s tax ID #, you can provide the W-9 Form and ask the vendor to return the completed form with their invoice. This will be the most efficient process to obtain their tax ID # and will avoid delays in payments.
Please fax the form to Purchasing at (214) 691-2704.
