I am new to IM, and I keep seeing simple sounding guides glossing over a subject. Taxes. Where I live (U.S, Cali) if I earn $400 in income I must file taxes. I'm a hard worker, have been all my life. I used to frolic away my precious time with T.V/Games/Movies, but my family has come under extreme hard times and I really want to assist in any way I can. Right now I spend 14 hours a day working for them without pay, I got 4 hours free, and I would like to monetize that. There are no jobs locally, and so I need this. I unfortunately do not have "Tax idenification" and really don't want to have to deal with all this nonsense. How can I avoid this issue, or is it completely unavoidable? Is there a list of Affiliates who don't ask for Tax identification?
