Is it legal for a company to withhold payment for an invoice because they require an 'updated" W-9 each year even if info has not changed? They have a w-9 for the vendor. Its my understanding W-9's do not expire.


No, that is not a valid reason to delay payment, but requesting a new W-9 every year is not unusual.

Unlikely, but If by "withhold" you mean that they send part of the money to the IRS as a tax payment on your behalf. That is a different story.
