    Is there a way to fake the tax form on AC? I am not located in US. I know, I can get a new AC account once I reach $600, however, getting a unique paypal id can be problem in the long run.

    Is there a tried workaround for faking the W-9 form on AC? Do they realy check in depth? Your thoughts would be appreciated.

    I really believe you shouldn't fake the W9. Yes, it would be great to continue using one account and see your clout level (and rate per article) increase. But, it's very very risky to play with the I^R^S. Just consider yourself lucky to earn from AC even though, like you said, you do not live in the US.

    If you really want a W9-verified account, have a JV with a US citizen. But of course, you have to split the earnings.

    20 articles on 1 AC account? I was under the impression that anything over 10-12 articles a day would bring your account under the radar.

    100 articles a day?? I definitely doubt that. Even 40 a day is a HUGE figure to give AC an extra signal. I'm curious, what upfront payments you are getting csnreyes?

    @ OP - I wouldn't recommend anything to do with faking tax forms. You start walking on awfully shaky ground getting involved in things like that for obvious reasons.

    The rule of thumb is to not submit more than 10-12 per account per day. (the less, the better for higher upfront payments) You may get away with submitting 20-40 articles a few times, but don't expect your account to stay unbanned for very long doing that.

    It goes without saying that VERY few people can legitimitly write 40 original articles in a day that meet AC's standards...

    and AC knows that

    My search landed me to this link. This is more like an substitute form, and makes clear why a Social Security number is not being provided.

    Has anyone tried this?
