Download a W-9 form from the IRS website. The IRS provides a copy of all tax forms on its website.
Fill out the personal information section. The independent contractor must provide his name and the name of the LLC. The independent contractor must also provide his address.
Indicate whether the LLC is being taxed as a sole proprietorship, partnership or corporation. The independent contractor must indicate the tax status of the LLC. If the independent contractor is unsure of the tax status of the LLC, she should check with an LLC member to provide this information.
Provide the Social Security Number of the independent contractor if the LLC is a single-member LLC being disregarded for federal taxation purposes. Provide the Employer Identification Number of the LLC if the LLC has more than one member or is being taxed as a corporation.
Have the independent contractor sign and return the completed W-9 to the LLC. Neither the independent contractor nor the LLC directly files the W-9 with the IRS. Instead, the information contained on the W-9 is used by the LLC to fill out IRS Form 1099.
