Hi Victor,

 

I would like to confirm that you are correct. You can use your own legal name and address as it appears in your passport or other official documents.

Hi Michelle,

 

I checked and it looks like your location is set in the U.S. All freelancers who are U.S persons should file a Form W-9 with Upwork (all others should file a Form W-8BEN).

 

Thanks!

Hi Vinay,

 

In addition to the information, Avery shared you can check out this Help Article to learn more about this form.  Under the Legal Name tab you will need to add your full legal name, if you have any additional questions let me know, thank you.
