My question is about the W9 form: I am a US person, but I do not reside in the US. There seems to be no option for people in my position.
I clicked on “I am a US person”, then filled in my address, but was taken to a page that told me, “You are not a US person”. Stumper.
What I ended up doing was putting my permanent address, which doesn’t match what the IRS has on file, in order to access the W9 form itself. I then filled out the W9 with my foreign address, and clicked “confirm” when the page told me that my address could not be found.
I’m not sure the verification will go through - even though the IRS has no problem with my foreign address, Fiverr might. I am also not sure how I will receive the 1099 when the time comes. Is this going to be mailed or sent digitally?
Is anyone else having this problem?
