The IRS requires Sawyer County to obtain a completed W-9 form from anyone to whom the County issues a check. This form is used in accordance with IRS guidelines to determine whether or not a 1099 will be issued and to ensure accurate reporting of the 1099. Failure to complete and return the W-9 form will result in immediate back-up withholding from future disbursements per IRS guidelines or a discontinuance of business with Sawyer County.
All information provided on the W-9 form is kept confidential and is only shared with the IRS via required 1099s. Please contact the Sawyer County Clerk Department if you have any questions or need assistance in completing the form.
