My company needs W9 from Upwork for the money we have paid to Upwork

Please read below and escalate my ticket to someone that can provide me with your W9.

Upwork is a vendor and I am paying Upwork for services. Therefore I need Upwork's W-9 form, formally titled โ€œRequest for Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification.

 

---
This is direct from the IRS website......

A vendor will give you his taxpayer identification number, address and business name, and will certify he is not subject to backup withholding when he sends you a W-9 form, formally titled โ€œRequest for Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification."

 

The Internal Revenue Service requires that you obtain W-9 forms when you make inventory and service purchases from a vendor to create a paper trail that allows the agency to catch vendors who do not report income and to prevent you from claiming illegitimate vendor expenses.

The IRS requires that you obtain a W-9 from every vendor from whom you purchase $600 in labor and services or $5,000 in direct sales, but you can request W-9s from vendors for smaller purchases.
---

 

My company can not claim a legitimate vendor expenses for the money we have paid Upwork without a W9.

Please send me your W9 asap or my company will not be using Upwork in the future.

 

I have already sumbitted an email and they refuse to send me Upwork's W9. At this point, this is an urgent matter. I have attched the exact form that I need. So please supply me with your W9.

Hi,

We also need a W9 From Upwork to determine if we need to issue a 1099 (i'm assuming not). How do we get a W9 from Upwork for this?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Greg, and Sherry, 

 

Please note that Upwork is an online marketplace, through which users can connect to enter directly into service relationships. Through the marketplace, clients directly engage and pay freelancers to perform services. Upwork acts as an escrow agent and passes funds from the client to the freelancer. That's why we don't believe a W-9 is necessary.

Upwork provides 1099-Ks if appropriate to freelancers if certain conditions are met. More information is available here.

I will request a member of the Customer Support team to reach out to you both to assist you with your request.

Actually, UpWork charges a fee for services, so it should provide a W-9.

 

We need a w9 as well please!
