    Yes! I faced the same problem.
    I selected my country as US even though I am from India.
    Amazon asked for Tax ID and sadly I could not resolve it till now.
    You need a Valid SSN of a US resident.

    I figured it out. Just edit your contact information and change your country to India and then go to Payment Method Settings choose direct deposit and enter your US bank account information and then Submit

    You just cannot say you're a US resident when you're not. Go back to your profile and edit it to give your true location. If you claim you're in the USA u will NEED a valid Social Security # or a Tax ID # which you guys cant really get unless your a citizen.
