TINs are needed to carry out the Internal Revenue laws of the United States. Section 6109(a) requires a provider of dependent care services to give to you a valid TIN, even if the provider isn’t required to file a return. The IRS uses the TIN to identify the provider and verify the accuracy of the provider’s return as well as yours. A care provider who doesn’t give you a correct TIN is subject to a penalty for each failure unless the failure is due to reasonable cause and not willful neglect. This penalty doesn’t apply to an organization described in section 501(c)(3). See Tax-exempt dependent care provider, later. If incorrect information is reported. You won’t be allowed the tax credit or the exclusion for employer-provided dependent care benefits if: • You report an incorrect name, address, or TIN of the provider on your Form 2441; and • You can’t establish, to the IRS upon its request, that you used due diligence in trying to get the required information.

You can show due diligence by getting and keeping in your records any one of the following. • A Form W-10 properly completed by the provider. • A copy of the provider’s social security card. • A recently printed letterhead or printed invoice that shows the provider’s name, address, and TIN. • If the provider is your employer’s dependent care plan, a copy of the statement provided by your employer under the plan. • If the provider is your household employee and he or she gave you a properly completed Form W-4, Employee’s Withholding Certificate, to have income tax withheld, a copy of that Form W-4. If your care provider doesn’t comply with your request for one of these items, you must still report certain information on your Form 2441. For details, see the Instructions for Form 2441. Specific Instructions Part I The individual or organization providing the care completes this part. Enter the provider’s name, address, and TIN. For individuals and sole proprietors, the TIN is a social security number (SSN). But if the provider is a nonresident or resident alien who doesn’t have and isn’t eligible to get an SSN, the TIN is an IRS individual taxpayer identification number (ITIN). For other entities, it is the employer identification number (EIN). If the provider is exempt from federal income tax as an organization described in section 501(c)(3), see Tax-exempt dependent care provider below. How to get a TIN. Providers who don’t have a TIN should apply for one immediately. To apply for an SSN, get Form SS-5, Application for a Social Security Card, from your local Social Security Administration office. To apply for an ITIN, get Form W-7, Application for IRS Individual Taxpayer Identification Number, from the IRS. To apply for an EIN, get Form SS-4, Application for Employer Identification Number, from the IRS. Note: An ITIN is for tax use only, and may expire under certain conditions. It doesn’t entitle the individual to social security benefits or change his or her employment or immigration status under U.S. law. For details, see the Instructions for Form W-7. Tax-exempt dependent care provider. A provider who is a taxexempt organization described in section 501(c)(3) and exempt under section 501(a) isn’t required to supply its TIN. Instead, the provider must complete the name and address lines and write “taxexempt” in the space for the TIN. Generally, an exempt 501(c)(3) organization is one organized and operated exclusively for religious, charitable, scientific, testing for public safety, literary, or educational purposes, or for the prevention of cruelty to children or animals. Part II Complete this part only if you are leaving the form with the dependent care provider to return to you later. Cat. No. 10437N Form W-10 (Rev. 10-2020)
