    The w 9 is simply a form requesting your information. It is likely that he is requesting your information so that he can file a 1099 on expenses paid to you.

    your employer paid you over $600 last year and he is obligated to report it to the IRS. You will get a 1099 from him soon that will show this amount he paid you. When you do your taxes you have to reoprt it as income.
