amazon merch tax detail non us citizen using payoneer

You should complete the tax interview to get paid. Even if you aren't a U.S citizen.
 
Its better to contact an accountant in your country that has dealt with international business , each country has a different tax structure.As asif says to have declare that you are not from the united states.
 
If I am not from us and I am using payoneer to verify merch should I check up not us member in tax detail and proceed or is there any other ways
I would assume you would be classified as making money in the US anyway. Kind of like a boxer or MMA fighter that travels to the US, fights in the US and returns home. They make the money in the US, so they're taxed in the US. Would assume you'd fit into the same category. So, I'd go for it.

Don't use an accountant for this, its a form to allow you to select what country you are from, and determine your tax bracket for royalties.
Its like a 2 page form, with about 6 options.

I suppose if you need help with that though, then yeah you'd be better speaking to any savvy internet user first.
 
The form isn't too complicated and you can go back and change it

It's not. Amazon will write this money off as marketing costs or something since they're paying a third party. If what you said was true then with all US CPA networks the users would have to pay taxes in the US, on top of having to pay them in their own country which is not the case. If you're not a US citizen you don't owe the US shit.

OP just fill out that you're not a US citizen and don't sweat it.

Not a professional. Just assumed. Foreigners are so lucky. :)
 
Actually, you're most likely going to get a 1099 or something similar.

If you get a 1099, the IRS might try to come for your money. However, since you're in another country, it might not be worth it for them. As a nonresident alien, you have to pay taxes on money made in the United States. You're taxed only on income sourced from the United States and that would be Amazon sales I would assume.

No, the taxable event is where the payee lives is not where the company that pays him is located so is considered a non us activity.But he has pay taxes to the local authorities more info here http://zemalf.com/1241/us-taxes/ .I never received a 1099 because I'm not a US citizen and I never lived in the United States in my case

DISCLAIMER:Get legal advice from a professional every country is different.

Thanks for the clarification. Did you generate enough revenue/sales to get a 1099? I know with PayPal, it is like $20k or 200 transactions or something another.

Anyway good luck. The conversation has been enlightening.
 
You can have a US bank account as a non-US citizen. The Payoneer Global Payment Service in USD is a virtual US bank account technically. Everything will be just fine, if you tell Amazon that you're a non-US citizen.
If you tell Amazon, that you're a US citizen, they will ask for tax details, what you won't be able to provide, so don't lie, tell your real nationality and i guess you'll need to fill out a W-8BEN form.

I made over $600 US a year in 2017 in affiliate commissions from both Clickbank and Amazon Associates I never received a 1099 from the IRS.But I will make more this year by diversifying traffic sources than just Youtube.
