I'm a Portuguese citizen and resident. I wanted to know if I should submit the W-8BEN, and if so, how should I submit it and where to?
Also, if you can provide me with information about how I should declare my earnings to the Portuguese IRS?
The Form W-8BEN is a form used to confirm you’re not a U.S. taxpayer and that Upwork is not required to withhold taxes from your earnings. To complete your W-8BEN, please go to Settings › Tax Information, and kindly provide us with your legal name and address.
Upwork charges VAT to freelancers and agencies in certain countries unless specific exemption requirements are met. Upwork is required to collect this tax and pay it to the appropriate government agency. For more information, please check out this help article.
