W9 form

Can the name on my PO box be different than the name I have on my social security card? I would like for the PO box to be good for more than a 1099 form once a year and trying to rename anonymous but still report taxable income properly

Yes, the most important thing is to make sure the name and social security number or tax id# on your 1099 form matches what the IRS has in their system.  The information for the PO Box is not relevant for tax purposes.
