    Yes, need to submit a W-9 form if you will be working in the US on TN visa. Form W-9 is a Request for Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification. It is usually used by a third party, like a bank, who must file a tax information with the Internal Revenue Service. As the name suggests, it asks for a US tax resident’s tax information including personal information like name and address.

    Generally, a person who has already spent 4-6 months working in the US is considered a US tax resident. TN visa holders can stay in the US for up to three years and may be renewed indefinitely. That is why they are considered US tax residents and must submit Form W-9.
