Since tax reporting is required for payments to individuals or organizations other than corporations, government agencies, and colleges/universities, it is important that departments obtain accurate Social Security or taxpayer identification numbers and permanent addresses for new vendors by securing and submitting a completed ASU Substitute W-9 and Vendor Authorization with the vendor entry (VE) document.
