We are required to keep a completed W-9 on file for any individual or organization that uses Bonfire to raise money. You can learn more about the W-9 by consulting with your tax professional and by reviewing the information provided by the IRS here: http://www.irs.gov/uac/Form-W-9,-Request-for-Taxpayer-Identification-Number-and-Certification 

You can download and save a W-9 form directly from the IRS website: http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/fw9.pdf 

Fund Organizers that are outside of the United States must submit a W-8BEN instead of a W-9. Download the form from the link below and use it in place of a W-9 when your fund ends successfully: http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/fw8ben.pdf

Problems submitting your W-9? Please contact our support team on our Contact Us page and we will help you resolve the issue.
