Tax ID for non US affiliates?

2 replies
Hey everyone.

I have this question, because in some affiliate networks, they will ask you for your Tax ID or SSN, and it will be a mandatory field.

For non US people, how have you handled this in the past? I've encountered some similar problems and I don't really know how to handle it.

Any information will be highly appreciated.

    Most non-U.S. affiliate marketers are not subject to tax withholding in the U.S. Check your specific affiliate network and there is always a tax-exemption form you need to fill-up. I did that with clickbooth before

    I would fill it in with an obviously bogus number, such as all 9s or all 0s. If needed, I would follow up by email to let them know I am non-US and do not have or need a TIN, but the signup form is coded to make this a mandatory field.
