Thanks for the information and links I'll check them out soon. This will be very helpful when I sign up for other freelancer websites. When I was on Upwork I had to do something similar to this, but after recently hearing some negative news about the website I'm not going to do anything on there for a while until there is some improvement there.
I'm new at working online from home and am trying my virtual assistant services at Upwork. I know very little about taxes and wondering if anyone is or have worked at Upwork knows what "before withdrawing funds, all non-U.S. persons must provide their W-8Ben tax information" means. Do I have to submit a form of some type? Are there any reputable websites that I can look at about tax information besides Canadian Revenue Services? Any help is a appreciated.
