Translation: In essence, prize winners receive a service or an item that they do not have to pay for. That is taxable income for income tax purposes. Since the radio station is the business that gives away the prize we have to take care of the 1099. So you need to have the winner complete a W-9 which gives us there taxpayer information so we can complete a 1099 for them at the end of the year.
