Dear Amazon associate,
Our records indicate that you last provided your U.S. tax information on an IRS Form W-8 with a signature date on or before December 31, 2015. Per the U.S. tax authority (Internal Revenue Service “IRS”), this form will expire on December 31, 2018. Please retake the tax interview as soon as possible in order to prevent expiration.
What You Need to Do
1.Sign into your Amazon Associates Account
2.Click “Account Settings” at the top
3.Click “View/Update Tax Information”
Please retake the tax interview even if the status says “Complete.”
Location of Services Performed
In the tax interview, please indicate where the services you are providing to Amazon are (or will be) performed. If you indicate that all or part of your services are (or will be) performed inside the United States, this means that you are physically located in the United States when performing your services.
You may be required to complete and mail a hard copy form depending on your interview entries or if you do not consent to provide an electronic signature.
What Happens if You Do Not Take Action
If you do not retake the tax interview before December 31, 2018, your payments may be subject to U.S. withholding taxes up to 30%.
