it shows inactive status on my profile for the payment ?


Hi Vibhu,


I checked your account, and I can see that you haven't completed your Form W9. All freelancers who are U.S persons should file a Form W-9 with Upwork. You sign electronically by submitting the form. Please follow the steps below to complete the form:


  1. Go to Settings  Tax Information
  2. Provide us with your:
    • Legal Name – Your own name, or your business name if you're filing as a company entity
    • Address – Where Upwork will mail your Form 1099-K or other tax forms, if necessary
    • Filing Status – Type of IRS tax filing you will use for earnings
    • Taxpayer Identification Number – TIN type and # you will use for your IRS tax filing

Thank you.
