NOTE: The Colorado Department of Labor requires that we show proof of each Individual Artist or Company as either an employee or "Independent Contractor" using either your social security number or business EIN (Employment Identification Number). This means we will need to collect that information and have some form of evidence to put on file that verifies your status. Examples: Business Card that states your business as Performer, Producer or Director, etc..., or a Website, or any other collateral material that lets them know your are truly in business to do the thing we are releasing funds to you for, otherwise we will need to pay you as a "temporary employee."
This individual or entity will receive a 1099 to at the end of the year, if your company earns over $600 or will receive a W-2 for any amount if you are a Temporary Employee.
You will also be asked to fill out and sign a paper version of the IRS W-9 form at check-in. The information you enter on this form is what we will use to create your payout checks and 1099 form, so please make sure they match the W-9.
