Because of the lots of paperwork and a time-taking process, taxpayers don’t really want to make any mistakes while filling out Form W-9. Our article includes every step required to fill out a Form W-9.
Steps for Completing Form F-9
- Line 1: You need to write the exact name you’ve given the IRS on Form W-9 as the tax payer’s name. Even a small mistake may trouble you with the filing process.
- Line 2: This is where you should write your applicable business name.
- Line 3: In this line, you are expected to put a tick or cross into the box that perfectly describes your business. The exemptions part is not required to be filled out if you’re an individual taxpayer.

The last and the most important part of W-9 filing is social security number and employer identification number sections.
