What is Form I-9?

All individuals hired for employment in the United States have to verify their identity with their employer. To that end, it is necessary to complete an I-9. Both employees and employers are involved in this matter and have to prepare the document according to the required criteria. By filling and signing in the blank, the employee confirms their employment eligibility.

In order to provide complete information, it is necessary to attach identifying documents. The list required documents can be found on the last page of the form.

The I-9 contains three sections:

  1. The first section provides details regarding the employee’s personal data, citizenship or immigration status. An individual has to sign i9 as well as the current date.
  2. Section 2 has to be filled out by the employer to ensure that all sections are properly completed.
  3. In the last section is used for reverification and rehires. At the end of the I-9, the employer is required to certify the blank.

The document must be retained by the superior for three years after the date of hire. It must be available to U.S. Government officials from the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Labor or Department of Justice.

Cut hours from your workflow preparing the document online. Finding the form you need, filling it out and certifying it right from your device will take no more than a few minutes. An individual can instantly certify i9 electronically with the help of SignNow’s intuitive tools.

  • I received my late husband's W-9 form to fill out for what I believe were our stocks. How am I supposed to fill this out or am I even supposed to?

    You do not sound as a person who handles intricasies of finances on daily basis, this is why you should redirect the qustion to your family’s tax professional who does hte filings for you.The form itself, W-9 form, is a form created and approved by the IRS, if that’s your only inquiry.Whether the form applies to you or to your husband’s estate - that’s something only a person familiar with the situation would tell you about; there is no generic answer to this.

  • I recently opened a Fidelity Roth IRA and it says my account is closed and I need to submit a W-9 form. Can anyone explain how this form relates to an IRA and why I need to fill it out?

    Financial institutions are required to obtain tax ID numbers when opening an account, and the fact that it's an IRA doesn't exempt them from that requirement. They shouldn't have opened it without the W-9 in the first place, but apparently they did. So now they had to close it until they get the required documentation.

  • How do I fill out form i-9 if I don't reside in the US or if I'm not a US citizen? Is there an alternative form for this for non-US residents? I live in Kenya and I'm a Kenyan citizen.

    Employees who do not work in the U.S. are not required to complete an I-9, nor are employers required to keep an I-9 on file for them.

  • How can I get better at small talk?

    5 Ways To Instantly Turn Small Talk Into BIG TALK:Let me preface this by presenting the following idea: nobody is boring. Whenever I hear colleagues or friends complain about small talk I always ask them "Did you make an effort to elevate the conversation?" Or did you just ask them the same jibber jabber questions that you do with 80% of the people in your life? Conversations may be a two way street but you always have the power to make it more dynamic and engaging. Ask boring questions and you'll receive boring answers. Simple as that.People can only show as much as you let them within the context of the conversation. Not everyone shines under the same light and it's your job as a social being to figure out how you can help them show off their dazzling personality. A classic conversational trap is asking people questions that you can easily anticipate the answers to.For instance you'll ask "How’s your day?" and they'll respond with "Good." That's boring, uneventful and you feel like you're just going through the motions. In this article I'll explain how to morph those typical small talk questions into meaningful opportunities for relationship growth.1) What you normally ask: "How's your day?"What to ask instead: "What's the most surprising thing that happened to you recently?"--Doing this entices them to give better answers and actually reflect on the highs and lows of the past week. Giving them the opportunity to be insightful will compel them to open up and give intimate details about their life that they wouldn't normally share.2) What you normally ask: "What do you do for a living?"What to ask instead: "What gets you up in the morning? What are you most passionate about?"--Feeding people generic questions is only setting ourselves up to receive generic answers. Giving someone a positive and encouraging context to bring up their job, sets them up to talk about it with passion. Often times we worry about answering questions in an easily digestible way. This trend of thinking is toxic for those trying to maximize the output of daily interactions. Make people remember you by actively engaging with them. Become unforgettable and you'll move up on their mental list.3) What you normally ask: How are you holding up?What to ask instead: What's holding you up? What motivates you to keep moving forward?--This question is typically saved for someone going through a rough patch in their life. There's a line in the 2000 Danny Boyle movie The Beach that says, "Either get better or die. It's the hanging around in between that really pisses people off." Asking someone about their mental state when they're clearly in distress will only encourage them to lie and say everything's fine, so they can alleviate any discomfort.By focusing on the positive aspects of sadness such as hope and inspiration, you are subconsciously allowing that person to release their repressed feelings in a healthy and uplifting way. Hearing the thought process behind their coping strategies will give you insight into the severity of their issues without having to ask outright. They say the quickest way to a persons heart is through their stomach, but it's actually through subtlety.4. What you normally ask: How was ________? (Your date, your trip to New York, your hike up Torrey Pines)What to ask instead: If you had to do ________ all over again, what would you do differently?The broader your questions are, the less details people will give in return. Asking them about the overall quality of their experience will garner a common response ensuring that their time wasn't wasted. Answers like "It was good. I had tons of fun", are the ones you want to avoid. Ask poignant questions that will actually make them think. This thought train you send them on will make other stops organically along the way, providing you a better shot at finding out how_________ truly was for them.5. What you normally ask: Are you married?What to ask instead: Do you think life partners are over or underrated?The best way to get someone to talk about something specific is to bring up questions surrounding the central topic you secretly want them to elaborate on. If you want to know about their husband/wife, you have to get there incrementally by first talking about friendships, relationships, love etc. This question serves two functions: (a) it gives you their perspective on love and (b) personal values. Someone who puts a high premium on having someone by their side has a much different psychology than a person who is indifferent to the idea. Their answer to this is a natural transition into volunteering information about their own personal experiences.Getting information through the proverbial front door of someone's brain will always be underwhelming and overrated. Small talk is normally inconsequential and monotonous. But it doesn't have to be that way! Getting to know someone is like trying to break into a house. You can't just bust the door down right away. You need a plan of attack. Could you get in through the window? Maybe sneak into the garage? Going from small talk to big talk is allowing the other person to open up the doors for you. People want to be heard and understood. You just have to give them permission first.When life hands you small lemons, make big lemonade. Happy talking!Thomas

  • Is there a Canadian equivalent to form I-9, which all US jobholders must fill out to prove legal residency in the US?

    Thanks for the A2A, John.The question is: “"Is there a Canadian equivalent to the I-9, which all US jobholders must fill out to prove legal residency in the United States.”Jeff provided a very good response. Everyone who is employed must have a SIN number. Everyone over the age of 18, and therefore legally obliged to file income taxes whether or not (s)he has an income, must have a SIN number. While there is no obligation for minors to have a SIN number, many parents will apply for SIN numbers for their children, especially if they have RESPs (Registered Education Savings Plan) because the federal goverment will also contribute to the savings in the child’s RESP.Employers must ask for and record the SIN number of every employee. Employers must provide each employee with a statement of income that includes the SIN number.SIN numbers are only required by a few government agencies, and even fewer private organizations (e.g., banks) and then only (ultimately) for tax purposes.Canadians are discouraged from using their SIN number in any other context. The SIN number is considered a sensitive identifier and not to be used lightly. Indeed, most government agencies are not allowed to ask for a person’s SIN number. See: Protecting your Social Insurance NumberYou must have a SIN number to be legally employed in Canada. In order to obtain a SIN number you must be a Canadian citizen, or a permanent resident, or a legal temporary resident (e.g., on a work visa). (See What documents do I need to apply for a Social Insurance Number (SIN)? )The upshot is that, once the employer knows you have a valid SIN number, it is assumed that you are legally entitled to work. The employer would know if your SIN is valid because (s)he has to submit payroll taxes and ensure that appropriate income taxes are paid on your behalf. If the SIN number is not valid, Revenue Canada will let your employer know pretty quickly!Edit: added “not”: Indeed, most government agencies are NOT allowed to ask for a person’s SIN number.
