US-based artists are asked to complete Form W-9, and non-US-based artists are asked to complete Form W-8BEN. We're required to collect this information once per year, and all DistroKid users are required to complete the required tax documents in order to receive earnings from DistroKid.
For any help completing the forms, please consult a tax professional.
Note: US-based artists are asked to complete Form W-9, which asks you for your TIN/EIN. As an individual, your TIN is your social security number (SSN). If you have registered as a business, your TIN is your EIN. For help with additional questions related to the tax forms, please consult a tax professional.
