How do I update an email address and resend the w-9 setup?

Let me help you update the email address of the contractor to resend the email invitation, @beatifullywaitin.


When trying to resend the email invitation to the contractor, you can only update the name. If you need to update the email address, then I suggest you remove the current contractor and add this once again with the correct email address.


Here's how to remove or mark the contractor as inactive:

  1. Go to the contractor profile.
  2. Click the Active drop-down below the name.
  3. Select Make inactive.                                                                         

Once done, you can now recreate the contractor's profile with the correct email address and resend the invitation:

  1. Select Workers menu and go to the Contractors tab. 
  2. Click the Add a contractor button.
  3. Provide the name and the email address.
  4. An email invitation will be sent to your contractor after clicking the Add contractor button.

You can check this article for more information: Invite a contractor to add their own 1099 tax info. Here’s also a guide on how to add, edit and inactivate contractors.


That's it! Drop me a comment if I can do anything else for you when re-sending the email invitation. I'll be always around to assist. Have a great day!
