withholding tax statement
Posted: Friday, December 14, 2018 9:51:57 PM
I would like to know where I can get a tax statement for withholding taxes sent to the IRS on my behalf. I need this in order not to pay taxes again in my own country. For some reason, the report we get on payments via paypal only give the amount deposited in our account and do not show the full amount we earned minus the taxes paid. This is very unhelpful.

I followed the link in the email that suggested that paypal provides a tax statement but when I got to the page they directed me to, there was nothing about tax statements.

Someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but as far as I know--at least for U.S. citizens--Zazzle doesn't pay withholding taxes, which are for employees, which is not what we are.

I am a foreigner and therefore they do pay withholding taxes. Even though my W8BEN form was approved, they still took off 30% of my earnings (it should be much less given the tax treaty with my country). In any case, I need a tax statement so I do not have to pay taxes on something that was already taxed.

Zazzle sends 1099 forms to US residents at the end of January. They send a tax form to non-US residents a bit later, I believe in April. You need to call or email Zazzle.

You should email the w8ben team about this because if your form was approved then Zazzle will refund any over withheld taxes to correct the error.

If you are interested, we have a group set up on facebook, "International Zazzlers United" that was set up to help people with just such w8ben form issues as we are bound to have someone from your country who can either advise you or has had the same problem and can explain in your own language.

Thank-you alanharman. I just applied to join the international FB group.
