A lot of folks panic when they are asked to fill out a W9 form.
My first episode with one left me with a feeling of confusion because I did not read the instructions to be sure of what I was doing.
I just had at it without reading anything and it was overwhelming - never again.
Take a little time to read the instructions and it is very simple to deal with.
Now when I fill one out I simply do it in about a minute.
It gets very simple to deal with these and if you do them often enough it is a breeze!
