A W-9 form is a “Request for Taxpayer Identification and Certification.” We need a W-9 form filled out with information for the organization that will be the team’s sponsor. For example, a school-based team will likely submit the school district’s W-9 form. Check with your accounting office- they will be very familiar with the form and should have a copy ready. The grant check will be made out only to the entity listed on the W-9 form, and the organization will receive a 1099 form from NYLC if funds granted were over $600 for the year.
