Yes, I am sure.

They don't provide it in this year.

Recently I contacted the Upwork Support and they answered that the 6166 form for Belarus will be ready in a couple of months.

It is high time Upwork recognized that different countries have different tax requirements - such as invoices that can be followed up. Upwork is sitting on the fence. IMO this is dangerous business practice in the long term.

Hi all,

 

Let me raise this topic up.

Working through CoS forms with Upwork in Belarus is not legal way of doing the things. We need to pay 2 additional taxes. The amount of the tax for one of them could be significantly reduced if we get ONE copy (scanned copy) of form #6166 "Application for United States Recidency Certification" for ALL the freelancers in Belarus.

 

Dear Upwork Team,
We, freelancers from Belarus, would highly appreciate your help and support in getting this document for us.

 

We believe that yours top management can understand our needs and can schedule regular delivery of such kind of document for us. I would recommend to schedule some activities for this in the beginning of each year.

Thank you in advance!
Looking forward to hearing from you soon

Cheers,
Siarhei

Unfortunately, form 6166 for 2017 hasn't yet been issued by IRS to Upwork, Siarhei. We only have form 6166 for 2016 currently available. I'll send you a private message with more information.

Aliaksandr,

 

Unfortunately, we won't be able to post the form publicly here in the Community. Freelancers can contact customer support here and request the form via a support ticket.
