Working on Upwork as a minor

Recently, I've finished my first job on Upwork and am waiting on approval from my client so that I can get paid. However, to access my earnings, I need to complete the W9 form. I'm not sure what to fill it out with. As a minor, is there anything I should know?

Thanks for flagging this for us, Tawanda.

 

I'll be sure to share this with our team for their review.
