Well.. as the title says.. I cannot find this information anywhere.. I do not live in the US, nor have I even set foot in the US for about 10 years now. Do I still have to send a W9 when CPA companies payout? I read somewhere that if you live abroad you can make something like 40k a year and not pay taxes but I'm not sure where. I don't have a physical address in the US or a company under my name established in the US. W9 forms say something like "US resident", which I am not. Or I could be mistaken. any pointers?
