If you work, you pay taxes. In short, it’s a combination of the U.S. law and Fiverr’s rules to comply.

Who has to go through the W-9 process?
All sellers on Fiverr - both existing and new - will have to declare if they are a US person. If so, they will have to go through the W-9 process. Filling in a W-9 is a legal requirement for US persons.

If you need help with the form, ask your parents or guardian.
