Why Curse needs tax information

Section 6041(a) of the Internal Revenue Code, and associated regulations and rulings, generally requires us to file an information return for payments made to each participant in the Curse Rewards Program who receives payments of $600 or more in any tax year. This reporting requirement applies to redemptions of Points for cash and to redemptions of Points other than for cash, including redemptions for gift cards and the like. In order to satisfy our reporting obligations required by the IRS, we have to obtain an IRS Form W-9 from each Curse Rewards Program US Citizens and an IRS Form W-8BEN from Curse Rewards Program Non-US Citizens to which this rule applies.
