    I'm a UK resident and want to cash out via a cheque. However I have to fill out a tax interview before I can proceed? Do any UK residents have any experience of this? Thanks.

    How were you notified that you had to fill that out? What is the context that they asked in? Do it if you want your money or if you are able.

    I've never cashed out before. I always used to see fill out payment options but never fill out tax information. I just got off the live chat and the guy said 'All of our Associates, both US and international, are required to submit the information. It is a new policy that was put in place just a couple of weeks ago.' Looks like I'm going to have to fill it in.

    Fucking hell having to fill out a w8-ben just to withdraw my earnings, it's ridiculous. In the section where it asked me for my foreign income identification number I left it blank. I'm not giving them my national insurance details. I'll see if it processes the form without this information.

    Update: I got an email saying 'Your tax information has been validated and your tax status is "Complete." Nothing further is required at this time.' The guy on the chat just said 'that email means the information we needed has been received as accurate.'

    So it's been approved.

    I had the same thing a month or so ago with my fourth cheque from them and I left out the NI details and they still sent it out.

    Lol at leaving the NI details blank too. I don't like giving out unnecessary information.
