KCS - What is a W9 Form?


  • To advise what a W9 form is and what it is used for.
  • To provide information on what to do when a Clio User requests a W9


  • Clio Support

Additional Information:

When a business pays an independent contractor $600 or more over the course of a tax year, it is required to report these payments to the IRS on an information return called form 1099-MISC. Businesses use the name, address and Social Security or tax identification number from form W-9 to complete form 1099-MISC.


As Clio is a Canadian company, we do not provide W9 forms. We provide a W-8BEN form. See attached for the 2017 form:
