The State of Florida requires vendors doing business with the State to submit a Substitute Form W-9. The purpose of a Form W-9 is to provide a Federal Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN), official entity name, a business designation (sole proprietorship, corporation, partnership, etc.), and other taxpayer information to the State. Submission of a Form W-9 ensures that the State's vendor records and Form 1099 reporting are accurate. Due to specific State of Florida requirements, the State will not accept the Internal Revenue Service Form W-9.

Effective March 5, 2012, State of Florida agencies will not be permitted to place orders for goods and services or make payments to any vendor that does not have a verified Substitute W-9 on file with the Department of Financial Services. Vendors are required to register and submit a Form W-9 on the State's Vendor Website at https://flvendor.myfloridacfo.com.
