I am doing freelance work on Upwork on behalf of myself, NOT my business. When trying to update my W-9 information, I only see an option to type "legal business name" instead of just being able to type my name-please help!

Hi Makeala,

 

You can enter your full, legal name in that field, as it appears in your passport and other official documents.

Ok, so the expectation is not necessarily that we are representing a
business? I do not want this to be confused on my taxes

Hi Makeala,

The W-9 form is required for freelancers to be able to withdraw their earnings from Upwork. You will select what filing status you are filing for in the drop-down. If you have any questions about your filing status, we advise you to contact your local accountant or tax advisor. You can also read this and this help article for more information.
