Quote:Be careful with this. It all depends on how they setup their auctions. If you are "selling" them the bird and then they are auctioning it off, then you are a "vendor" by law, which means if they request a w-9 from you and you don't send it in, and they get audited for some reason, you could get audited and you better be able to prove how much you didn't make. However if they are auctioning the bird for you, and the laws may be different in Mass. for auctions, the auctioneer must be licensed by the state as an auctioneer. Then I don't think they need a W-9. My guess is that they have someone who is an accountant involved with the FFA and they are going by the letter of the law.
