What tax form(s) do Non-U.S. Artists submit?

If you’re a non-U.S. artist, please download and submit a W-8BEN form before requesting payment for a sale and fill it out using the detailed instructions below. Note that it isn't necessary for you to submit a W-8BEN in order to begin selling on the site, as we will only need that information in order to pay you for works sold. If desired, you may wait until you make your first sale before submitting your tax form.
