Hi Ali Kemal,

 

Please, go to your Settings> Tax Information and complete your W-8BEN form on that page.

 

Check out this help article for more details.

Thanks for the reply. But the thing i don't understand is that do i register before to IRS or is it enough to put just what Upwors asks in that section. Because i haven't register or fill any w-8ben forms. Upwork just tell me to put the legal name and the adress which are have to be the same with my tax return.

 That is all you need to do. Nothing else required!

Correct, Ali Kemal, you only need to provide the information that's required on your Settings> Tax Information page and confirm that you are not a U.S. person. You don't need to register with IRS separately.

Did you have any problems or did you fill that format at some point? 
I´m totally new here and I have a delay in my payment, so I wonder if I did something incorrectly, and I have the very same question. I don´t have that format, they just ask for information and that is confusing.
Hope you can help out.

Hi Sarai, 

I checked your account and can confirm that your withdrawal was rejected by your bank. On this page in your account, you will see that your withdrawal was returned to your Upwork account. Please check with your bank why this transaction was rejected. 


In the meantime, you may want to add a new payment method while fixing this issue with your bank.
