IRS Form W-9S, Request for Student's or Borrower's Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification, is an application requested from students to provide their taxpayer information to an educational institution (a college or university) or a lender of a student loan. This form also certifies that the loan is being used (or will be used) exclusively to pay for qualified higher education expenses (if applicable).
Form W-9S is used by a requester to get the correct Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) from a student or a borrower in order to use it to file certain information returns with the International Revenue Service (IRS). The form itself looks like a one-page document where a recipient must fill out their full name, address, TIN, and signature. A W-9S Tax Form also contains a Student Loan Certification (which is only applicable for student loans) and general instructions for the requester and the recipient. The newest version of the form was last released on December 1, 2017.
A W-9S Tax Form is usually provided by a requester, however a student or a borrower can download it themselves. A fillable version of Form W-9S is available for download below.
