I just got my first assignment from a client, and I need to complete all the "paper"work. I am an Expat american, so I suppose I need to file a W9. However when I go to User Settings > Tax Information and I click on W9form I keep directed to W8-BEN. How can I access W9?? Is there anywhere else I can get to the form???
Please change the location and enter your US address on the Contact Info page in Settings, in order to be able to access the W9 form. You also need to contact Customer Support so they can enable you to change the tax information details.
Thank you Vladimir for answer. I have been living in Rome, Italy for the past 13 years, and I really don't have a valid US address! I have an option to enter a company name of my partner (which is Italian) as my "legal name", which will enable me to file W8BEN. Would that be acceptable?
Thank you Virginia!! I did find the form on IRS site as you suggested! I am waiting for a reply from Vladimir before proceed! and Sorry about the double post, it was an accident!
Now I am beginning to be rather concerned. If an US address is required for W9, and using my partner's company name as "Legal name of business" is not allowed (of course I have his consent, he was the one who suggested that), what would be the solution in my case???
