I am working on a project as an Individual and I need to fill a W9 form for tax purposes.

In the field "List account number(s) here (optional)" do I have to put the bank account in which the money I receive go?


According to this link http://taxes.lovetoknow.com/federal-income-tax/w9-tax-form:

The very last line on the personal information section refers to "account numbers." Here, the taxpayer lists any accounts they have with the IRS to pay back taxes or pre-payments for anticipated tax liability obligations. This information is optional and is inapplicable in many situations.


No.just give your social security number and contact info, that's all that's needed.

  • In general, that "account number" is not for bank account right? So even for a solo LLC that optional account field not applicable? – Csaba Toth Nov 22 '14 at 19:41
