As a client, if you fail to collect a W-9 Form from your contractor, and do not issue the required 1099-MISC Form, the IRS will hold you responsible for not withholding 28% tax on the amount paid, and assess penalties for not issuing the required form. The penalties are $260 for each failure to file and an additional $260 for each failure to issue a required 1099 Form. The IRS is very strict about 1099 Forms, and in addition to the potential penalties for not filing, they will deny the deduction for that expense under audit. It is strongly recommended that you have a W-9 From all contractors you do business with.
Contractors are faced with a $50 fine for each instance they do not provide the form when it's requested, and may be subject to a backup withholding rate of 28% from future paychecks.
