Tax Forms

 

Form W-4 is an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) tax form that is filled out by employees to indicate their tax situation to their employer. The W-4 form tells the employer the amount of tax to withhold from an employee's paycheck based on their marital status, number of allowances and dependents, and other factors. 


Form W-9 is used for Businesses to Request Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification, to get information from vendors they hire as independent contractors (also called freelancers).  


 Use Form SS-4 to apply for an employer identification number (EIN). An EIN is a 9-digit number assigned to employers, sole proprietors, corporations, partnerships, estates, trusts, certain individuals, and other entities for tax filing and reporting purposes.  


 A 1099-MISC reports the amount you paid to an independent contractor throughout the year. It serves a similar purpose as the W-2 does for an employee. 

Use Form 4506-T to request tax return information. Taxpayers using a tax year beginning in one calendar year and ending in the following year (fiscal tax year) must file Form 4506-T to request a return transcript.
