How To Find A Social Security Number for 1099 Purposes

Having many contract employees can be very beneficial throughout the year, but a headache during tax time. As opposed to W-2 employees who give their SSN to their employer upon hiring, contract employees may not be willing to provide you with their SSN come tax time.


The issue with this is that if an employer does not have social security numbers for all employees, W-2 employees and contractors alike, the employer could get penalized with the IRS and they could impose large fines. Also, not having a contractor’s SSN for 1099 purposes does not give the employer leeway or allow them to file late taxes.
