For the latest information about developments related to Form W-9 and its instructions, such as legislation enacted after they were published, go to www.irs.gov/FormW9.Purpose of FormAn individual or entity (Form W-9 requester) who is required to file an information return with the IRS must obtain your correct taxpayer identification number (TIN) which may be your social security number (SSN), individual taxpayer identification number (ITIN), adoption taxpayer identification number (ATIN), or employer identification number (EIN), to report on an information return the amount paid to you, or other amount reportable on an information return. Examples of information returns include, but are not limited to, the following.• Form 1099-INT (interest earned or paid)• Form 1099-DIV (dividends, including those from stocks or mutual funds)• Form 1099-MISC (various types of income, prizes, awards, or gross proceeds)• Form 1099-B (stock or mutual fund sales and certain other transactions by brokers)• Form 1099-S (proceeds from real estate transactions)• Form 1099-K (merchant card and third party network transactions)• Form 1098 (home mortgage interest), 1098-E (student loan interest), 1098-T (tuition)• Form 1099-C (canceled debt)• Form 1099-A (acquisition or abandonment of secured property)Use Form W-9 only if you are a U.S. person (including a resident alien), to provide your correct TIN.If you do not return Form W-9 to the requester with a TIN, you might be subject to backup withholding. See What is backup withholding, later.
By signing the filled-out form, you:1. Certify that the TIN you are giving is correct (or you are waiting for anumber to be issued),2. Certify that you are not subject to backup withholding, or3. Claim exemption from backup withholding if you are a U.S. exemptpayee. If applicable, you are also certifying that as a U.S. person, yourallocable share of any partnership income from a U.S. trade or businessis not subject to the withholding tax on foreign partners' share ofeffectively connected income, and4. Certify that FATCA code(s) entered on this form (if any) indicatingthat you are exempt from the FATCA reporting, is correct. See What isFATCA reporting, later, for further information.Note: If you are a U.S. person and a requester gives you a form otherthan Form W-9 to request your TIN, you must use the requester’s form ifit is substantially similar to this Form W-9.Definition of a U.S. person. For federal tax purposes, you areconsidered a U.S. person if you are:• An individual who is a U.S. citizen or U.S. resident alien;• A partnership, corporation, company, or association created ororganized in the United States or under the laws of the United States;• An estate (other than a foreign estate); or• A domestic trust (as defined in Regulations section 301.7701-7).Special rules for partnerships. Partnerships that conduct a trade orbusiness in the United States are generally required to pay a withholdingtax under section 1446 on any foreign partners’ share of effectivelyconnected taxable income from such business. Further, in certain caseswhere a Form W-9 has not been received, the rules under section 1446require a partnership to presume that a partner is a foreign person, andpay the section 1446 withholding tax. Therefore, if you are a U.S. personthat is a partner in a partnership conducting a trade or business in theUnited States, provide Form W-9 to the partnership to establish yourU.S. status and avoid section 1446 withholding on your share ofpartnership income.In the cases below, the following person must give Form W-9 to thepartnership for purposes of establishing its U.S. status and avoidingwithholding on its allocable share of net income from the partnershipconducting a trade or business in the United States.• In the case of a disregarded entity with a U.S. owner, the U.S. ownerof the disregarded entity and not the entity;• In the case of a grantor trust with a U.S. grantor or other U.S. owner,generally, the U.S. grantor or other U.S. owner of the grantor trust andnot the trust; and• In the case of a U.S. trust (other than a grantor trust), the U.S. trust(other than a grantor trust) and not the beneficiaries of the trust.Foreign person. If you are a foreign person or the U.S. branch of aforeign bank that has elected to be treated as a U.S. person, do not useForm W-9. Instead, use the appropriate Form W-8 or Form 8233 (seePub. 515, Withholding of Tax on Nonresident Aliens and ForeignEntities).Nonresident alien who becomes a resident alien. Generally, only anonresident alien individual may use the terms of a tax treaty to reduceor eliminate U.S. tax on certain types of income. However, most taxtreaties contain a provision known as a “saving clause.” Exceptionsspecified in the saving clause may permit an exemption from tax tocontinue for certain types of income even after the payee has otherwisebecome a U.S. resident alien for tax purposes.If you are a U.S. resident alien who is relying on an exceptioncontained in the saving clause of a tax treaty to claim an exemptionfrom U.S. tax on certain types of income, you must attach a statementto Form W-9 that specifies the following five items.1. The treaty country. Generally, this must be the same treaty underwhich you claimed exemption from tax as a nonresident alien.2. The treaty article addressing the income.3. The article number (or location) in the tax treaty that contains thesaving clause and its exceptions.4. The type and amount of income that qualifies for the exemptionfrom tax.5. Sufficient facts to justify the exemption from tax under the terms ofthe treaty article.Example. Article 20 of the U.S.-China income tax treaty allows anexemption from tax for scholarship income received by a Chinesestudent temporarily present in the United States. Under U.S. law, thisstudent will become a resident alien for tax purposes if his or her stay inthe United States exceeds 5 calendar years. However, paragraph 2 ofthe first Protocol to the U.S.-China treaty (dated April 30, 1984) allowsthe provisions of Article 20 to continue to apply even after the Chinesestudent becomes a resident alien of the United States. A Chinesestudent who qualifies for this exception (under paragraph 2 of the firstprotocol) and is relying on this exception to claim an exemption from taxon his or her scholarship or fellowship income would attach to FormW-9 a statement that includes the information described above tosupport that exemption.If you are a nonresident alien or a foreign entity, give the requester theappropriate completed Form W-8 or Form 8233.Backup WithholdingWhat is backup withholding? Persons making certain payments to youmust under certain conditions withhold and pay to the IRS 24% of suchpayments. This is called “backup withholding.” Payments that may besubject to backup withholding include interest, tax-exempt interest,dividends, broker and barter exchange transactions, rents, royalties,nonemployee pay, payments made in settlement of payment card andthird party network transactions, and certain payments from fishing boatoperators. Real estate transactions are not subject to backupwithholding.You will not be subject to backup withholding on payments youreceive if you give the requester your correct TIN, make the propercertifications, and report all your taxable interest and dividends on yourtax return.Payments you receive will be subject to backup withholding if:1. You do not furnish your TIN to the requester,2. You do not certify your TIN when required (see the instructions forPart II for details),3. The IRS tells the requester that you furnished an incorrect TIN,4. The IRS tells you that you are subject to backup withholdingbecause you did not report all your interest and dividends on your taxreturn (for reportable interest and dividends only), or5. You do not certify to the requester that you are not subject tobackup withholding under 4 above (for reportable interest and dividendaccounts opened after 1983 only).Certain payees and payments are exempt from backup withholding.See Exempt payee code, later, and the separate Instructions for theRequester of Form W-9 for more information.Also see Special rules for partnerships, earlier.What is FATCA Reporting?The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) requires aparticipating foreign financial institution to report all United Statesaccount holders that are specified United States persons. Certainpayees are exempt from FATCA reporting. See Exemption from FATCAreporting code, later, and the Instructions for the Requester of FormW-9 for more information.Updating Your InformationYou must provide updated information to any person to whom youclaimed to be an exempt payee if you are no longer an exempt payeeand anticipate receiving reportable payments in the future from thisperson. For example, you may need to provide updated information ifyou are a C corporation that elects to be an S corporation, or if you nolonger are tax exempt. In addition, you must furnish a new Form W-9 ifthe name or TIN changes for the account; for example, if the grantor of agrantor trust dies.PenaltiesFailure to furnish TIN. If you fail to furnish your correct TIN to arequester, you are subject to a penalty of $50 for each such failureunless your failure is due to reasonable cause and not to willful neglect.Civil penalty for false information with respect to withholding. If youmake a false statement with no reasonable basis that results in nobackup withholding, you are subject to a $500 penalty.
Criminal penalty for falsifying information. Willfully falsifyingcertifications or affirmations may subject you to criminal penaltiesincluding fines and/or imprisonment.Misuse of TINs. If the requester discloses or uses TINs in violation offederal law, the requester may be subject to civil and criminal penalties.Specific InstructionsLine 1You must enter one of the following on this line; do not leave this lineblank.
