Does Songtrust Handle Tax Forms and Withholding?

We follow each territory’s laws.

Songtrust is unable to offer tax advice. We suggest asking a professional any questions you may have, and logging into your account to edit and/or update your tax information accordingly.

If you are a U.S. citizen or business, the form you must fill out is a W-9. If you are a non-U.S. client, the appropriate forms are a W-8BEN for individuals or a W-8BEN-E for businesses.

Songtrust is set up to follow each territory’s tax withholding laws. We also review tax forms before paying out royalties, so please fill them out to the best of your ability. We will reach out if we need any additional information.

For more details on how tax forms work within the U.S., please visit the official website of the IRS.
