Common Mistakes in Completing IRS Form W-9

Providing a TIN that is incorrectly formatted (e.g., wrong number of digits or structure).
Using a TIN that does not match the IRS records for the name listed on the form, leading to mismatches and processing delays.

Failing to use the legal name as it appears in IRS records, especially for entities or individuals with name changes that have not been updated with the IRS.
For joint accounts, not listing the name of the individual or entity whose TIN is provided.

Selecting more than one classification or the wrong classification for the entity’s legal structure.
Misunderstanding the classification of LLCs, leading to incorrect tax treatment.

Claiming exemption from backup withholding without meeting the criteria, often due to a lack of understanding of the exemption rules.
Incorrectly entering FATCA codes, or failing to enter any when required, which can lead to compliance issues.

Neglecting to check the box on Line 3b when applicable, which is crucial for entities with foreign partners, owners, or beneficiaries.
Overlooking required additional documentation for foreign entities, leading to incomplete or non-compliant submissions.

Submitting the form without the necessary signature, which certifies the accuracy of the information and compliance with IRS requirements.

Providing outdated or incorrect address details, which can cause issues with correspondence and information returns.
Not updating the form when there are significant changes to contact information or business status.
