Why do I have to enter my social security number?

Tutors are required to enter their Social Security Number (SSN) in order to receive payments and for tax purposes. This information can be entered securely using this link. Your SSN will be encrypted in our database for added security

If you would prefer to use an Employer Identification Number (EIN) for tax purposes, simply print an IRS form W-9 and hand sign the form. Once you have taken those steps, email your signed W-9 to Support@wyzant.com and a representative will forward your request to our Finance Team who will place it on file. 

Please note that an SSN will still be required for a background check, should you choose to purchase one for yourself or if a student purchases one on your behalf. Please review our Background Check Policy for more information.
