I'm not following what you're saying. We've cooked contests that have W-9's in the envelope. Usually have one filled out in my purse to hand over immediately and the check is mailed. What's the dealio, Bro?

They can require it for any amount, but the $600 point is where they are required to send you a tax doc at the end of the year.

It shouldn't really matter since you are reporting it on your taxes whether it is cash or check anyway, right? I mean, it would be illegal to not report earnings. You can always claim expenses to offset the winnings so you don't pay tax on it, but you have to report it either way.

Getting cash saves you the hassle of filling out the form, but it still needs to be reported.

Being self employed, I keep a signed W-9 on the computer to send out to my customers. It is necessary for payers in order for them to file a 1099 in January. It is standard practice -- just do it. It is the law, and it is incredibly easy.

You can use your costs as deductions. It's not that hard to figure out. Keep you receipts -- or not, and bitch and moan about your taxes. Seriously, it is not a big deal if you took the time to keep decent records. I do my own taxes with Turbo Tax, and I get it done in a few hours.

I agree, I'm uncomfortable handing my social over to someone that is placing it on an unknown computer.
At Ames we were asked to fill one out when we entered. No problem if you win something but to ask for it ahead of time is a bit much.

They asked for it in Marietta Ohio. When I called questioning them I was told it would be okay to fill it out on Saturday if needed.....and that the past winners had declined to turn it in early. I took that as a clue to not submit a form in advance LOL We didn't win but we didn't do too bad either.

Me too, that is why I obtained an Employee Identification Number (EIN) from the IRS. Easy to get and free, and it eliminates the need to provide a SSN.

I'd say more that 1/2 of the events we entry have you fill one out when you arrive or before awards. We use the LLC ID number.

Ok.. what if you have a sponser who buys stuff or donates meat or something like that. You can't write that off on your taxes and some people won't give you their information for you to turn in to get that check sent to them? some of the expenses go to the competitor while others go to the sponsor. some sponsors might take up all the expenses. How do they get the check then?

You do not have to incorporate to write off expenses as a "business." Just set yourself up as a "sole-proprietor," and keep track of your winnings and expenses. Now, if your expenses exceed your winnings for every year, it could be a red flag for the IRS. A business that loses money year after year will eventually look suspect.
