    Hello guys, hope you're having a great day! I have question and need for your help & opinion. I live in europe, and I registered for amazon affiliate, there is a TAX information step, but I'm not an US resident so what should I do next? And the information tells me that I wont receive any payments, till the tax information is complete. W8IMY form is the form I need to complete and then send to them, right? But the form I think is very difficult, is there any european who have done this, any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance,
    Regards,
    Martin

    Yes, but when I choose "no" it still gives me the next step for non-US residents, have you looked the next step ?
    'You have selected that you are a non-U.S. person for tax purposes. We will now gather your personal or organization information to complete the applicable IRS tax form.'

    Do anyone from Europe have done this, and can help, please?

    It's a step by step detailed guide.. You will need a walk through with this.

    Let me check my Tax settings and see how mine is configured.

    Okay, looking forward, because if I'm not an US resident I have to complete the tax form anyway, I need to know information what should I need to do to get this Tax information complete, because if there're no info, I won't receive any payments, right?

    So first you will be asked if you are an individual and what country you are from and your full name. That should be simple to fill in. You will be also asked if you are an agent or intermediary. If you are registering for yourself then the answer is no.

    Next you see the US persons test, you will be asked a few questions, if you tick none of those then you are not a US person and can continue.

    It will then ask to ensure all services are located outside the US this means you, employees, and servers/server rental companies must be non-US

    It will then ask if you have a US tax number - you will say no:

    You will then be presented with a W8BEN like the one below, it will mostly be filled in with your information. You just need to complete that and proceed.

    If you have any specific questions while filling that in, then just ask here.
