Update on Supplier / Payee Information - Replacing Payment Compliance Form (PCF) With Ohio Substitute W-9

The Payment Compliance Form (PCF) will no longer be accepted effective Monday, July 15, 2013.   Instead, the OHIO Substitute W9 Form must be used.  This can be found here.

This form combines information and authorizations needed by the IRS, the State of Ohio, and Ohio University so it is very important that the information be completed and signed by the payee/supplier, not a representative of Ohio University.

The following sections must be signed by the payee/supplier and not a university representative:

  • Section 5 for ALL payees and suppliers as an affirmation of State of OHIO and Ohio University information.  This includes those completing a W-8BEN.
  • Section 6 for US Persons and Companies including a Resident Alien as defined by the IRS.  Those completing a W-8BEN in addition to the OHIO Substitute W9 should not sign this section.
