Questions about Provider's asking for your tax id?
« on: January 08, 2018, 01:31:06 PM »
Happy New Year everyone!

I have been running my business for 2yrs now and this week is the first week a provider asked me for my tax id. So this is new to me. This provider only paid $323 for the entire year of 2017, is this common?

Actually I would wonder why they wouldn't ask for it or your invoices wouldn't have it on there. Mine do. A business should always include Tax ID number on their invoices. This is why it's good idea to get a Tax ID even if you don't have employees or your a sole propietor. Even if he only paid $323 he might still have enough to itemize with other deductions. For $323 you don't have to do a 1099 so that's probably why he needs your Tax ID.
