City of San Carlos - Vendor Information Questionnaire


Vendor Information Questionnaire

Home > ... > Forms > Vendor Information Questionnaire


We are required by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and State Franchise Tax Board to have certain information on file for every company selling products or providing services to the City of San Carlos. This information is used for 1099 reporting purposes.

A new vendor will need to complete the Vendor Information Questionnaire and return it to the Finance Division. A delay in providing the requested information may cause a delay in payment of your bill.

If we do not receive this information within 10 working days or if we are advised by the IRS and/or State that the data is incorrect, we are required to retain a "Backup Withholding" of 31% for the IRS and 7% for the State on all payments to your firm.
