US citizen abroad and tax/location information

Hi, I am a US citizen from California, but am on a student visa in Madrid, Spain (currently in south of France because of quarantine for Coronavirus). I was wondering if I would need my US address or my address in Spain on my profile? And would I need to fill out the W-9 form for tax purposes in the US? I don't want to get into any trouble when filing taxes...

Thank you for the help.

Hi Lindsay,


If you`re staying in France or Spain for a longer period of time you will need to add your current location (address). 

Regarding your for, all freelancers who are U.S persons should file a Form W-9  (all other freelancers should file a W-8BEN form). Thank you.
