Hi, before I can do business with Upwork, I need a W-9 to issue a purchase order. Can someone please contact me to get the right paperwork?

 

Thanks.

Hi Jock,

 

Freelancers are required to fill in the W-9 on Upwork which you sign electronically by submitting the form. You can access it by going to Settings  Tax Information. For more information, please check this help article. Thank you.

Joanne,
Thanks for the quick reply. As the company seeking freelancers, why do I need to sign a W-9? I need a W-9 to verify an entity in order to issue a purchase order. Do I have access to the hired freelancer's W-9?

Hello,

I have a similar question regarding needing a W-9 for a purchase order. Was the previous commenters request resolved, if so I would like to know how or potentially be put in contact with the Customer Support Team as well.

Thanks,

Owen
