Tax Professionals' Resource has recently published a new tax compliance white paper called "An Overview of IRS Form W-9 and the W-8 Series," which outlines the purpose of the IRS Form W-9 and W-8 series as well as when they should be obtained.
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Form W-9 and the IRS series of W-8 forms are integral to businesses and individuals making payments to employees, contractors or other persons to whom money is owed. The W-9 form is strictly for U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents while the W-8 series of forms is used for foreign citizens and nonresident aliens receiving payments from the U.S. The purpose of these forms is to provide the IRS with pertinent taxpayer information for recordkeeping and tracking. The information that is tracked includes the amounts paid and any amounts withheld.
This white paper covers:
- Payment types requiring Form W-9
- Persons required to file Form W-9
- Submitting Form W-9 electronically
- Substituting Form W-9
- Taxpayer identification numbers
- The different forms included in the W-8 series
