    TextBroker requires ID, and I'm only 16. How can I bypass this and get paid via PayPal?

    You can't. They do this to protect themselves and their writers because all income that comes through their company must have a certain level of accountability considering the writer is paying their own taxes. If you have funds waiting in TB, your screwed. They wont send them via check or paypal until you verify your identity.

    That doesn't work. The last time I spoke to someone in corp ( I'm a U.S. citizen and have no issues with it but a friend registered from Kenya tried the same thing), they will disable your account or will send you an email telling you to rescan it with the DOB.

    If they haven't gotten you yet, they are cracking down on them now because their tax season is over, they got hit by the IRS because some writers didn't claim all their taxes on the income they provided and they have to start getting all the tax info done early.

    It should be the business of the writer, and no one else, as to handling their tax situation, if they have one at all. The IRS harasses business to act as unpaid government informants and surrogate collection enforcers on their behalf. The US tax system is based on this kind of admin shakedown to make third parties document transaction activity in a manner that presumptively characterizes it as taxable (whether it is or not), then uses this paper trail to create a phantom, but equitable case for liability. This allows them to make a assessment that they can hound people with.

    This is why you should submit stealth identities and profiles to such sites, and limit you earnings to under $600 per account, if you don't want to feed the tax beast and their magic 'paperwork=liability' system. Fight phantom tax liability with phantom docs. Better, spread your writing gigs across 10-15 sites on this basis, so. you aren't devastated when one site withholds funds from you.

    Wow, that blows.

    Well, I'm 16, so I can't really do anything.

    I guess I'll move on to the next site.

    Thanks for the information guys,
