Thanks, Andrea! And do I have to fill out my Tax Residence too? I ask because I'm a non-US citizen

Hi Usama,

 

If you're not a US-freelancer you'll need to fill your W-8BEN form in order to receive your funds. This form is used to confirm you’re not a U.S. taxpayer and that Upwork is not required to withhold taxes from your earnings. You may need to consult a trusted tax advisor about proper ways to report your Upwork income for your particular tax requirements. 

 

Thanks!

I already filled the W-8BEN form. My question was do I have to fill the "Tax Residence" form. It's right above the W-8BEN under Tax Information.

 

Thanks!

Hi Usama,

 

I am sorry for the late response. You may choose to provide an invoicing address under "Tax Residence", but it is optional.
