Yeah, that’s a confusing statement. It should be easy to hit both criteria but that’s not necessarily true.

Hey need help ASAP

I have a very important question and my account depends on it.

I was born in 2007 june 9th in North America/California/Freemont is Washington dc hospital.

This makes me a U.S citizen, But I lived in the states until I was around 8-9 months old.

Both my parents are Indians so I at the age of 8-9 months I had to move from the states to India .

Now I am 13 years old and have an aadhar card which you get when you live in india for around 5-7 years i think.

This makes me both Indian as well as american.According to a law in india I can live in India legally until im 18 as I am under my fathers visa i think.

I am using a indian number as I have been here for the past 12 years so I have a number that is indian.

Also my parents told me they had to move from freemont to san jose then san jose to san Francisco so we dont have any specific zip code.

So here is the question do I still have to take the test?

Is there anything I can do?

I have already contacting customer support

Thanks

Have you earned at least $20,000 this year or by the end of this year?

I was not clear about this message>>> I confirm that all the services I offer on Fiverr are performed while outside of the U.S.

That means you agree you don’t live in the U.S. It’s a little confusing because if you are a U.S. citizen living outside the U.S. you still pay U.S. taxes (I think).

A lot of companies issue W9’s, even when you do freelance work for a week. I have an S-Corporation and pay corporate taxes on a quarterly basis, so I don’t know if I’ll be given a W9.

I just hope Fiverr doesn’t take social security taxes, medicare, and federal taxes, every time I make a withdrawal. I’m fine showing my income, but since this isn’t a full-time job, I expect to be treated like a freelancer.

Are you confusing the W-9 with the W-2 or 1099?

I read that a company can only submit 250 1099’s electronically. I’m sure that will create a lot of mailings for fiverr. How is fiverr going to send the IRS a million 1099’s?

It’s actually the opposite, If its over 250, they Have to do it electronically or face fines of $250 per form.

Hi all! I have a question. Will certifying that I am not a US citizen limit my audience client? I am Vietnamese, but most of my clients were US citizens. Thanks for reading 🙂

Your profile says Vietnamese so your clients know where you are from. They already know. I don’t see why US citizens submitting a tax form would affect anything.

Thank you for your reply! I always introduce myself as Vietnamese, my profile also said that. So yes, my clients know my nationality and they accepted my job even though I’m not from their country. It’s not the problem.

I’m just afraid that, by this way, Fiverr may aim to give priority to the sellers from US because they pay taxes. Prioritize increasing impressions for US sellers for example. Just a thought of my own, but maybe?
