Purpose of Form
A person who is required to file an information
return with the IRS must get your correct
taxpayer identification number (TIN) to report, for
example, income paid to you, real estate
transactions, mortgage interest you paid,
acquisition or debt, or contributions you made to
an IRA.
Use Form W-9 only if you are a U.S. person
(including a resident alien), to give your correct
TIN to the person requesting it (the requester)
and , when applicable, to:
1.
Certify the TIN you are giving is correct (or
you are waiting for a number to be issued).
2.
Certify you are not subject to backup
withholding
If you are a foreign person, use the
appropriate Form W-8. See Pub 515,
Withholding of Tax on Nonresident Aliens and
Foreign Corporations.
What is backup withholding? Persons making
certain payments to you must withhold a
designated percentage, currently 28% and pay to
the IRS of such payments under certain
conditions. This is called “backup withholding.”
Payments that may be subject to backup
withholding include interest, dividends, broker and
barter exchange transactions, rents, royalties,
nonemployee pay, and certain payments from
fishing boat operators. Real estate transactions
are not subject to backup withholding.
If you give the requester your correct TIN, make
the proper certifications, and report all your
taxable interest and dividends on your tax return,
payments you receive will not be subject to
backup withholding. Payments you receive will
be subject to backup withholding if:
1.
You do not furnish your TIN to the
requester, or
2.
You do not certify your TIN when required
(see the Part II instructions on page 2 for
details), or
3.
The IRS tells the requester that you furnished
an incorrect TIN, or
4.
The IRS tells you that you are subject to
backup withholding because you did not
report all your interest and dividends only), or
5. You do not certify to the requester that you are
not subject to backup withholding under 4 above
(for reportable interest and dividend accounts
opened after 1983 only).
Certain payees and payments are exempt from
backup withholding. See the Part II instructions
on page 2.
Penalties
Failure to furnish TIN. If you fail to furnish your
correct TIN to a requester, you are subject to a
penalty of $50 for each such failure unless your
failure is due to reasonable cause and not to
willful neglect.
Civil penalty for false information with respect
to withholding. If you make a false statement
with no reasonable basis that results in no backup
withholding, you are subject to a $500 penalty.
Criminal penalty for falsifying information.
Willfully falsifying certifications or affirmations
may subject you to criminal penalties including
fines and/or imprisonment.
Misuse of TINs. If the requester discloses or uses
TINs in violation of Federal law, the requester may
be subject to civil and criminal penalties.

Part I -Taxpayer Identification
Number (TIN)

box.
If you are a resident alien and you do not

TIN is your IRS individual taxpayer
identification number (ITIN). Enter it in the
social security number box. If you do not have
an ITIN, see How to get a TIN below.
If you are a sole proprietor and you have an
EIN, you may enter either your SSN or EIN.
However, the IRS prefers that you use your
SSN.
If you are an LLC that isdisregarded as an
entity separate from its owner (see Limited
liability company (LLC)above), and are

“pre-LLC” EIN, if desired). If the owner of a
disregarded LLC is a corporation, partnership,
etc., enter the owner’s EIN.
Note: See the chart on this page for further
clarification of name and TIN combinations.
How to get a TIN
.
If you do not have a
TIN, apply for one immediately. To apply for an
SSN, get Form SS-5, Application for a Social
Security Card, from your local Social Security
Administration office. Get Form W-7, Application
for IRS Individual Taxpayer Identification Number,
to apply for an ITIN or Form SS-4, Application for
Employer Identification Number, to apply for an
EIN. You can get Forms W-7 and SS-4 from the
IRS by calling 1-800-TAX-FORM (1-800-829-
3676) or from the IRS’s Internet Web Site
www.irs.gov.
If you do not have a TIN, write “Applied For” in
the space for the TIN, sign and date the form, and
give it to the requester. For interest and dividend
payments, and certain payments made with
respect to readily tradable instruments, generally
you will have 60 days to get a TIN and give it to
the requester before you are subject to backup
withholding on payments.
The 60-day rule does not apply to other types of
payments. You will be subject to backup
withholding on all such payments until you
provide your TIN to the requester.
Note: Writing “Applied For” means that you have
already applied for a TIN or that you intend to
apply for one soon.
Part II - Certification
To establish to the paying agent that your TIN is
correct or you are a U.S. person, or resident
alien, sign Form W-9.
For a joint account, only the person whole TIN is
shown in Part I should sign (when required).
Real estate transactions. You must sign the
certification. You may cross out item 2 of the
certification.
