Federal Regulations require us to report to the IRS payments for services rendered by unincorporated vendors, such as speakers, performers, and contractors. These payments are reported to the IRS via IRS Form 1099-Misc.
In order to comply with IRS regulations and avoid penalties, we must have a tax identification number (TIN, Employer Identification number or Social Security Number) for each unincorporated vendor. Then vendor is required by law to provide us with their correct TIN. We collect this information on the New Vendor Request/Substitute W-9 Form. No checks will be issued until this completed/signed form is obtained.
Please note that payments must be made directly to the person/company providing the service. We will not issue checks to third parties.
