    do you want to keep the job?

    they want a copy of your tax info so they can do the yearly tax forms (w2) and put you down as a sub contractor.

    Biz Lic...no brainer. and insurance also a no brainer. Most prop companies want them named as an "also insured" such that way they can make sure they are covered if you screw up. most will also ask for proof of Workers Comp., or some proof of health style insurance is you are a solo.

    MarcSmith's right. Most businesses that employ your services will request similar docs, if not more, and you should keep these items readily available in your office to fax or copy.

    They (your clients) have taxes to file and other paperwork hoops to jump through. If that's what is required to keep doing the job and they are clients you want to work with then I would recommend supplying them with copies of the paperwork.
