You should request these forms when you use the IRS system for e-file to submit your application for exemption from income tax. The forms we have available are: Form W-9, with Original Sign-On, and identification number, or proof. (If applicable). Also, if your employer is requesting you to provide an IRS form called Form W-8BEN, Application for Federal Tax-Exempt status (Form W-8BEN may be submitted by an employer if an employee does not sign Form W-8BEN). Your current employer should submit to you a W-9 form. You should be able to get the most up-to-date information regarding exemptions via IRS.gov or via telephone at. The new IRS guidelines are listed here: You may also get information from your employer on whether your employer is paying an income tax on your compensation. A statement from your employer is not necessary to complete and submit the Form W-9 and Form W-8BEN if you can clearly determine that you are required to pay the IRS as provided in your particular state, for example, you should be required to submit an “electronic or paper” W-8BEN form. If you are a “qualified taxpayer,” the IRS has the same policy as for the “taxpayer” as defined in sections 6038, 6039 and 6040 regarding the submission of Form W-9. The terms “qualified taxpayer” and “taxpayer” are often confused. A “qualified individual” (within Section 6038, for example) is one who has a tax liability at the federal level but not at the local level (within § 6039). A “taxpayer” (within § 6040) is a taxpayer except in certain cases such as members of organized religious congregations or members of the clergy.
