We are not 501c3. Should we have to provide a W-9 to the company processing the online receipts of Tithes and Offering. We do not file income taxes

IRS shows no record of our having a 501C 3. Is that a legal requirement? Molly

Filing out a W-9
by: Vickey

Not sure what you mean by "We are not 501c3". If you are considered a church with the IRS, you are automatically considered a 501(c)(3).

I don't know why they would need one from a church. You might call and talk to a representative. If you are required to fill one out, make sure you mark the box to show you are incorporated (if your church is a corporation).

We are not either but we get W-9's from people we pay regularly to have proof they are not an employee.

If you want to DIY your payroll, I highly recommend you look at using Gusto! It is very user friendly and their support is awesome! Plus they know how to set up and maintain payrolls for churches and nonprofit organizations.

Note: I am a "partner" of Gusto, but as I have told you before ... I never recommend anything that we or our clients have not tried and love =)
