    Yes, as a non-US resident, you need to fill out the W-8BEN IRS form, if you earn more than $600/year, companies often ask for this beforehand and they don't pay you until you submit the form.
    The form: https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/fw8ben.pdf
    Instructions: https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/iw8ben.pdf
    Fill it out on your machine, print it, sign it then scan it and send it via email to your affiliate manager.

    I think you don't have to fill out the tax id field, at least i've never did, i didn't experience any issue so far and i submitted quite a few of these to different companies/networks throughout the years.
