IRS W-9 Form

How to Fill Out a W9 Form for a Nonprofit Corporation

IRS has a very specific method for corporation differentiation. Some of them are put under a classification that makes them exempt from filing taxes. However, any representative in this category will need to file the blank w-9 form.

How to Define a Nonprofit Corporation?

Those types should meet the following criteria:

  1. To be engaged in activities only for charity reasons;
  2. Be organized for scientific or public safety activities;
  3. Be positioned as a religious organization;
  4. Those who collect investments for charity events or legitimate charities;
  5. Those who previously filed the document;
  6. If the organization is positioned as a nonprofit and provides services not related to its purpose, then it has to report taxes and file a w-9 form.

To be sure that your firm belongs to the tax-exempt category, visit the official Internal Revenue Service website and use a specialized search. It will help you to better identify your company and find more supporting information.
