As an independent contractor, the IRS will require some forms to be submitted for tax purposes. Send these forms to your tax preparer. They include:
Individual Taxpayer ID Number (ITIN) Form W-7. Users complete this form to apply for, or to renew an existing, IRS individual taxpayer ID Number. Access the form on this page.
Request for Taxpayers Identification Number and Certification Form W-9. This is the form independent contractors submit to the person or companies who have hired them. They in turn file this information with the IRS, and include information about how much you were paid. Access the form from this link.
Miscellaneous Income and Form 1099. You will receive this at the end of the year and it records how much this individual paid you. You should collect as many 1099s as W-9s you received.
