The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) requires that every city vendor have a current W-9 (Request for Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification) form on file with the city. Complete the W-9 Form and mail it to: Lynden City Hall, Attn: Accounts Payable, 300 4th Street, Lynden, WA 98264.
Failure to comply may result in backup withholding or delayed payment of invoices until the completed W-9 is returned to us. Your assistance in expediting the return of this information to update and maintain our records is appreciated.
