i fianally get to fill out a w-9 request for taxpayer identification number and certification form from winning a premium contest.
i have a question regarding the form. there is a place to check and the choices are as follows..
individual/sole propietor, corporation, partnership, other with a space to provide what other is, also a spot to check exempt from backup withholding.
these sound like choices for a business which is not me. which do i check?
any help is appreciated.

went and looked at the form online it appears that you don't check a box you just go to the area where it requests your ssn

I believe you should check "individual". I have filled out 2 and that is what I checked.
