All persons or entities providing child care services must have their Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) certified by the Office of the Comptroller.
A person who does not have a social security number or Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN) or who refuses to disclose their social security number or FEIN will not receive payment by the State of Illinois to provide child care services. Payments issued to child care providers who care for children receiving CCAP subsidies are reported to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The Form W-9 is used to ensure that the provider's earnings are reported accurately to the IRS and provider annually.
