W-9 Form

Lithium Hosting does not issue W-9s, the reason is simple and is explained below.

If you pay another individual or company for "service work" then you must get a W-9 from them and send them a Form 1099 at tax time. This usually applies to amounts over $600. For example, if you hire someone to perform a one-time service or a series of ongoing services and the total for the year will exceed $600 then you will need to get a W-9 from them. If you simply purchase goods or supplies from someone then no W-9 is necessary. For example, if you buy a web hosting plan (a product) for your company's website then no W-9 is needed. If you pay an individual or a design agency to build a website (service) for you then a W-9 is required.

Because Lithium Hosting provides Hosting, Domains and SSL Certificates as a product, no W-9 is required or provided.
