How does AngelList use the requested tax information?

The tax information AngelList collects is typically provided on a Form W-9 – request for taxpayer identification number and certification or one of the forms from the W-8 series.

The IRS requires forms W-8 and W-9 to determine tax withholding. These forms impact how AngelList is required to withhold on distributions and income allocations for your investments. We also use these forms to populate investor information on Schedule K-1s we prepare and distribute to lead entities.
