The City of Tampa collects your social security number for the purposes of tax reporting to the Department of the Treasury, Internal Revenue Service (IRS)

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS (section references are to the Internal Revenue Code unless otherwise noted).
Definition of a U.S. person. For federal tax purposes, you are considered a U.S. person if you are:
• An individual who is a U.S. citizen or U.S. resident alien,
• A partnership, corporation, company, or association created or organized in the United States or under the laws of the United States,
• An estate (other than a foreign estate), or
A domestic trust (as defined in Regulations section 301.7701-7).
Special rules for partnerships. Partnerships that conduct a trade or business in the United States are generally required to pay a withholding tax on any
foreign partners’ share of the income from such business. Further, in certain cases where a form W-9 has not been received, a partnership is required to
presume that a partner is a foreign person, and pay the withholding tax. Therefore, if you are a U.S. person that is a partner in a partnership conducting a trade
or business in the United States, provide Form W-
9 to the partnership to establish your U.S. status and avoid withholding on your share of partnership income.
