Hi, I don't have a company to fill the w8 form for taxes, do I still have to fill it? how does it work? I'm a non us resident, do I have to fill it every time I get paid? does this apply for venezuela?

Hi Ana,

 

The W-8BEN form under Settings> Tax Info, have the purpose to confirm you're not a US taxpayer. You can use your own legal name as it appears in your passport or other official documents. 

You may need to consult a local tax adviser about proper ways to report your Upwork income to your country's tax authorities.

Thank you.
