Rewards Program Terms Change

Recently we became aware of a needed change in how we've been handling payments to international authors.

While we'll still not need to withhold anything, we do need to start collecting a W-8BEN for any Non-US Citizen who wishes to redeem more than $600 worth of points a year. More information can be found [[kb:store/tax-information/|here]] and [[kb:store/international-taxes|here]].

Nothing has changed for US Citizens. We still need a valid W-9 on file if a US Citizen wishes to redeem more than $600 worth of points a year. More information regarding this form can be found [[kb:store/domestic-taxes|here]].

I hope that these knowledge base pages will help people understand more about why we need these forms and how to get them to us. If there are any concerns or questions we'll do our best to address them.

    I'm pretty sure you guys mean "US Citizens or Permanent Residents" since all US tax laws apply to them too.

    Aside from the Tax Information found in the KB, I've not been able to find the full text of the Rewards Program Terms. Could someone point me the way? Thank you.

    You guys rock Kaelten. Thanks for taking care of us authors (not that I'll be collecting anything, but thanks!)

    Just a heads up, but please do not post personal information in the comments here. If you have questions/comments that contain personal info, please feel free to PM Kaelten or myself.
