    those tax forms require either an EIN or SSN. i dont have my own so can i use my moms as my own? would that work? also someone told me that i didnt need to do it if im outside of the US, well I'm in Canada but the affiliates still require me to fill it out. so hes wrong?

    well like every affiliate network requires you to fill in those tax forms to receive payment, which requires either an EIN or you can use a SSN alternatively.

    It wouldn't be a good idea to use your mom's social security number. You could create a lot of problems for her. When the affiliate networks report your income to the IRS, your mom could get audited.

    My friend uses his dad's ssn for like a year with no problem. Just sign up under her name. Oh ya let her know before you do this.

    If you don't want to give out your SSN to get payments, please leave internet marketing.
    Even paypal requires that you verify your SSN at one point.

    All money(including internet money) is taxed.
