Taxes Form Inquiry

Hello Community;


Hopfeully you're all safe during this pandemic. It's my first time to work as a freelancer on (UpWork) and have a question regarding the W-8BEN form required to get paid through my Local bank.

I had entered all the required info collected from my local bank account, but the billing information was inactive due to the W-8BEN form where it needs to be firstly compelted..

I've attached a print screen of the info required, but quite frankly, i'm not sure where to get this info from and would grealty appreciate your help with figuring this out....

Many Thanks for taking the time to read my inquiry...Waiting for your prompt repsone.


Stay Safe!!

The W-8BEN form is used only to confirm you are not a US tax payer, just enter your name & address.


Hi Shady,


Mohammed is right. 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 provide Upwork with your Form W-8BEN information, kindly follow these steps:


  • Go Settings  Tax Information
  • Provide us with your legal name and address

Thank you!
