Options for Employers While Paying Wages Who Used Unassigned SSNs
What options does an employer have when paying back wages to employees who used unassigned SSNs?
If the taxpayer does not have an ITIN yet, he/she can provide the employer a Form W-9 and indicate that a tax ID has been “applied for.” The employer will issue a W-2, take the maximum tax withholding, and leave the SSN section blank and attach the Form W-9.
