I issued a check the business name that is listed on Line 2 of the W-9. The vendor states I should have issued it to the name on Line 1. Which is correct?
Normally, checks are made out to whatever is stated on the invoice. Ideally, the business would tell you where they would like the check made to. If you don't have any info, best to ask, but lacking any info, line 2 of the W-9 seems the next logical choice, since that is the "Business Name". It appears that line 1 is more for the IRS.
