Audible requires all providers to provide valid taxpayer identification information in order to comply with U.S. tax reporting regulations governed by the U.S. tax authority (Internal Revenue Service "IRS"). The tax information interview collects the information needed to complete an IRS tax form (e.g. IRS Forms W-9 or W-8) which will be used to certify your U.S. or non-U.S. status, determine if your payments are subject to IRS reporting, and the rate of U.S. tax withholding (if any) applicable to your payments. If you are a non-U.S. agent acting as an intermediary, you will be asked at the end of the interview to mail your IRS tax form and any required supporting documentation to Amazon at the address provided.
Until your tax status is "Complete", your payments will be subject to delay.
