Gaston County Board of Commissioners

The disclosure of the information I’m requesting is not primarily in my commercial interest, and I believe is likely to contribute to public understanding of the operations or activities of the government, making the disclosure a matter of public interest. If your office is not the custodian of this record, please steer this request through the proper channels to reach its destination. Please reply to me within 10 days, as prescribed by IRS Publication 1589. Should your office deny this request, please state in writing the basis for the denial (including the exact statutory reference authorizing the denial).

Please provide the electronic copy of IRS form W-9 for the “Judiciary Courts of the State of North Carolina ”. I am hoping to find out the Employer Identification Number [EIN] of this public entity.

Although I’m requesting the EIN for this particular branch of the “Judiciary Courts of the State of North Carolina I believe that there are other Branches and one Subsidiary operating under the same name (“Judiciary Courts of the State of North Carolina … which may all be under one umbrella, and would mean there is only one EIN for the entire system. If this is the case, then please provide me with that EIN

Editor’s Note: Sunshine Request makes no claim as to the veracity of any statements or information contained in any of the requests, or public records, we receive.

Editor’s Note 06/26/24: The submission above has been marked as “Completed”. As written, it is unclear what specific, searchable public records the sender would like to receive, or to what specific entity the request should be sent.

In comparing the request’s Subject with its Message it’s unclear if you’re asking to receive a copy of “the State of North Carolina Judiciary Courts’ W-9″, or a copy of “the Gaston County, NC Board of Commissioners’ W-9”. Also, should this request be addressed to the Gaston County Board of Commissioners (and/or Gaston County Records Officer) specifically, or to the State of North Carolina Judiciary Courts?

Please feel free to revise and submit a new request through our website. Please clearly indicate any specific details, subject, message, keywords, dates, record types, City / County / State, etc. about the exact public records that are being requested.


Additional Note for Users: Sunshine Request does not control if / when Government entities will confirm receipt, begin processing, complete, or deny requests we submit to them via our website. If you would like to make a request that is time sensitive, we recommend that you reach out to the appropriate government entity directly for assistance with a request, rather than submitting through our site.

Sunshine Request is run by a very small team. Due to holidays, unforeseen events / scheduling conflicts, there may be times that we cannot publish or update requests for several days. We will do our best to process all requests as quickly as possible.

We review and send in requests to the appropriate entities as quickly as we are able, and it is up to the Government agency to determine the timeline and speed with which the request can be processed. We generally try to follow up on requests once every 1 – 2 weeks as we’re able, until the government agency has confirmed that the request has been received and is being processed (and there is some timeline for completion), and we will wait to follow up again during the time period they specify.


Sunshine Request will not fulfill the following types of requests:

☀️ Requests that are incomplete, non-specific, or vague.

While we do proofread requests we receive for general spelling and clarity, we may choose not to fulfill the request if it is incomplete, or it is unclear what specific information the requester hopes to receive. In this case, the sender may rewrite and resubmit the request.

It’s the requester’s responsibility to write the request in a manner that clearly specifies a record that is being requested, and to what government entity it should be sent.

☀️ Please be specific:

It is important that what you are requesting is specific and reasonable, and is an actionable records request. Please specify the exact type of records you’d like to receive, rather than any “possible” or “potential” info that could be searched. Remember that the larger your request, the more time it usually takes to fulfill. Specificity will often help reduce the amount of time needed to process the request.

It is important that a request has a clearly written and complete Subject and Message, and also specifies the Government Entity (or entities), City and/or County, and State to which the request should be sent. If applicable, please also include any responsive timelines for the info that should be requested.

While we do proofread requests we receive for general spelling and clarity, we may choose not to fulfill the request if it is incomplete, or it is unclear what specific info the requester hopes to receive, or if it violates our policies.

Before submitting a request, please take a moment to review our tips for How to write and make a successful request. If you have additional questions about our site or how to make requests, please check out our FAQs or Policies page.

☀️ Code of Conduct: Please do not use Sunshine Request or any of the results of public records requests to harass government entities / employees, businesses, private citizens / individuals, or otherwise.

☀️ Please note that we cannot pay any fees / associated costs related to any of the requests on our site. If it is not possible for a Government Agency to process our request without incurring fees, then it is the responsibility of that Agency to let us know what the potential costs may be — at which point we will ask that they cease processing the request. We will mark the request as “Completed” on our site, and the sender can contact the Government Agency directly, should they wish to further pursue a request.

Thank you for using Sunshine Request!
