How to fill out a W-9 Form
It is finally 1099 filing season, and in order to file it, you NEED a W-9 form that is completed by your contractor. In this VIDEO, we discuss how to access W-9 form, and how to appropriately fill it out so that you have complete information from your contractors to issue 1099 forms.
IRS W-9 Link: https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/fw9.pdf Form W-9 is a commonly used IRS form. If you have your own business or work as an independent contractor, freelancer, or gig worker (in other words, self-employed), a client may request that you fill out and send a W-9 so they can accurately prepare your 1099-NEC form, report the payments they make to you at the end of the year and know whether or not you are subject to backup withholding.
