Ok I understand that all activity generated in the US is an activity that generates taxes, but I do not live in the US. So what to do?
See how to pay those taxes by writing an email to email@example.com and they answered me by sending me this link: https://shutterstock.secure.force.com/contributorpkb/articles/en_US/kbat02/000006558 with the form W-8BEN and this is what ir said about W-8BEN form:
“If you are submitting to Shutterstock as an individual and are a resident of a country that has a tax treaty with the U.S., then please submit Form W-8BEN digitally on Shutterstock’s website to benefit from the reduced or zero withholding rate that is specified in your country’s tax treaty. Form W-8 BEN must be submitted digitally on our site, we cannot accept your Form W-8BEN via email or fax.”
Then I definitely would have to deduct 30% tax, but the difficulty that I have right now is completing the form, which asks me any number or ITIN taxpayer. According to these numbers help page is left blank. But it has left me a warning on Form I sent. So expect to play tells me the support to taxpayers.
I am far from the first payment and the minimum payment amount is $ 100 but i can be changed to $ 75, but I prefer to resolve this before to be prepared.
