US federal tax law requires 3DExport to collect US Author tax information through an IRS Form W-9 and report on income paid. If you are a U.S. citizen or resident alien, then no matter where you are worldwide you can submit a Form W-9 to 3DExport to satisfy your filing requirement. Typically there will be no withholding of taxes on any of your 3DExport income. If you do not submit a valid Form W-9, 3DExport will be required to deduct 28% withholding tax from sales proceeds and remit these directly to the Internal Revenue Service.
If you are not a US citizen or resident alien, you will need to submit a Form W-8. If you are a resident of a country that has a tax treaty with the U.S., you will benefit from the reduced or zero withholding rate that is specified in your country’s tax treaty. If you are a resident of a country that does not have a tax treaty with the U.S., then your U.S. source income from 3DExport will be subject to a 30% withholding tax.
Please indicate whether you are a US Person. If YES, enter your Form W-9 information. If NO, enter your Form W-8 information.
