I just got an email that reads:
As we approach the end of the year, we need to make sure that we have the required tax forms on file for all of our creators. Please complete your W9 by October 26th. After that date, you will be required to submit a W9 in order to initiate an earnings payout. Don’t worry, it only takes a few minutes, and payouts will be available again as soon as you submit the form."
I’m a little confused since I’m not a US citizen and is my understanding that the form I would need is “W-8BEN” (which I filled back in 2016 and have never been asked to update it) at first I figured once I clicked the provided link I would be taken automatically to a W-8BEN option, but I’m taken automatically to a W9 option (even tho my account is set as a non US tax payer). So I’m just a little worried this could be a problem for me in the future, specially since this email comes with a deadline. I’m also wondering if anyone else has experienced this and has some advice.
I apologize if this is not the correct place to ask about this, this is my first community post.
