Hi everyone,

** I am well aware that this is not official information and you may not be a tax advisor etc, etc **

This may have already been asked but I couldn't find it using the search bar, so please point me in the right direction if it has.

Like a lot of people, I had the email last week regarding the upcoming tax changes and I am currently filling out the information on my AdSense account. I've already watched the official video (and about 10 others) and I'm a little confused on question 6 and I'm hoping someone else who isn't in the US can steer me in the right direction.

Question 6 asks '' Has the individual or entity identified in the Tax identity section performed any activities and services for Google within US?'' I haven't physically worked in the US and I haven't filmed in the US, but Google (YouTube) is hosting/showing my videos which is a service/activity so should I click yes.

Basically, I just want to know what other non-US people ticked for this.

Thanks.

I'm non US, I choose the "No". Because just like you said, never filming or work in US.

So far, no problem for my adsense.

I've been in a similar scenario; however, we have a separate W-8BEN form for persons and legal organizations - the W-8BEN-E. In my situation, I have stated that my revenue is completely transparent. I relocated to the United States for an extended length of time, don't want to have any difficulties with the government.

I hired a tax-preparation service to help me save money on taxes make pay stubs, and I only spent a few dozen dollars because it saved me time and money, and the site created a bill for me in seconds.
