Form W-9 is often referred to as an IRS W9 form or IRS W-9 form, or simply W9. Form W-9 is used to provider accurate taxpayer identification number (TIN) to the person who is required to file an information return (such as Form 1099) with the IRS to report income paid to you, real estate transactions, mortgage interest you paid, acquisition or abandonment of secured property, cancellation of debt, or contributions you made to an IRA. The TIN is either a social security number (SSN) or employer identification number (EIN).
You must request Form W-9 in order to determine the taxpayer identification number (TIN) of a U.S. person (including a resident alien) and to request certain certifications and claims for exemption. Withholding agents may require signed Forms W-9 from U.S. exempt recipients to overcome a presumption of foreign status. For federal purposes, a U.S. person includes but is not limited to:
A partnership may require a signed Form W-9 from its U.S. partners to overcome a presumption of foreign status and to avoid withholding on the partner's allocable share of the partnership's effectively connected income. For more information, see http://www.irs.gov/instructions/iw9/ar02.html#d0e103
You should not use Whiskey 9 or Form W-9. You must advise foreign persons to use the appropriate Form W-8 or Form 8233, Exemption From Withholding on Compensation for Independent (and Certain Dependent) Personal Services of a Nonresident Alien Individual. See http://www.irs.gov/instructions/iw9/ar02.html#d0e103
