How do I Understand and Submit the Correct Tax Form?
Navigating tax requirements can be challenging, especially when working with international platforms like OneForma. For us to ensure compliance and smoothly process your payments, it’s important that you submit the right tax form. Here’s how to find out which form that is.
For US Citizens: Submit a W9 Form
If you’re a US citizen, regardless of where you live, you’re required to submit the W9 form. The United States Internal Revenue Service (IRS) uses W9 forms to gather information about domestic contractors and freelancers.
How to Fill out the W9 Form: You’ll need to provide your name, address, and Social Security number (SSN).
