Vendor IRS Form Matrix

IRS documents (W9, W-8BEN, W-BEN-E) for new vendors need to be signed and dated within the last 12 months.  Any changes to these documents (i.e. name, address or TIN change) should be signed and dated within the last three months, in addition the approximate date of the change should also be included.  Any documentation that states the details of the change should be provided as that helps to ensure effective and timely processing of the change request.

FYI An address on a W‐9 could be PO Box address, if that is the address they have on file with the IRS.
FYI TAX HOME ADDRESS This is the address that is to be on the IRS documents. Having a Remit address on the IRS document in addition to the Tax Home address is optional. The Remit is not to be there as the only address for the vendor unless "tax home" and "remit" are the same.
