Begin Seamless Form W-9 Collection With TaxBandits: First 5 W-9 Requests Are Free

Published June 7, 2023

ROCK HILL, SC / ACCESSWIRE / June 7, 2023 / Throughout the tax year, many businesses make payments for services to vendors and independent contractors in the course of doing business. At the end of the year, businesses are required to file 1099 forms with the IRS to report these payments.

The key to a seamless tax season and a smooth 1099 filing process is gathering and collecting required information from vendors ahead of time. Businesses can request their vendors' information using Form W-9. While Form W-9 is not required to be filed with the IRS, it does offer businesses and vendors the ability to share tax information securely.

TaxBandits W-9 Manger: Updating an Outdated Process

For many businesses, the process of requesting W-9 forms from their vendors can be a tedious and outdated one. Mailing or faxing paper forms back and forth between businesses can be time-consuming and erroneous. Scanning in signed copies isn't much better.

TaxBandits has a streamlined solution that removes the manual work and margin for error from the process. With the TaxBandits W-9 Manager, their clients can request W-9 forms electronically, the only information needed is the vendor's name and email address.

Once the request is sent, the vendor will receive an email with a secure link to complete their W-9. Once the vendor completes the W-9 and provides their e-signature, they will receive a copy of the forms for their records and the TaxBandits client that made the request will be notified.

Upon notification, the TaxBandits client can review and approve the W-9 form, which will then be stored securely in their account. When it comes time to file tax forms for this vendor, the information will already be available and verified by the vendor.

Streamlined Year-end 1099 E-filing

At the end of the year, when it comes time to file 1099 forms to report the payments made to vendors and independent contractors, the W-9 information is crucial. TaxBandits clients can easily access the information in their W-9 Manager to complete 1099 forms. This includes the vendor's basic information as well as their Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN).
