I am new to freelancing, and because of that I have never filled out a W9 tax form. So, I am currently lost as to what I am supposed to fill out on the tax information area of my account. Do I simply put what I will fill out when tax season comes along and l complete my W9 for the first time? Or will I not be able to do this at all?
In your account settings under Tax Information, fill in the information there:
There is no form, this information is the same as filling out the paper Form W-9 form from the IRS. Please contact your local accountant or tax advisor if you have questions about your filing status or TIN. Also, please read this and this help article for more information.
