Tax I.D. Number (TIN) Assistance
Important notes about United States (U.S.) Taxpayer Identification Numbers (TIN):
All reportable payment recipients MUST provide the RF with a U.S. Taxpayer Identification number.
- Employees must show their Social Security Card which displays their Social Security Number (SSN) and official name
- Non employees can provide a SSN if they have one or otherwise must provide their Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN)
If an individual is scheduled to receive reportable payments and they do not have a U.S. TIN, they MUST apply for a U.S. taxpayer identification number and provide the number to the appropriate HR / Payroll or Accounts Payable office that handles RF activity at your location.
