I Do Not Have a Valid US Social Security Number, Can I Still Join Songtrust?

Yes! Songtrust represents songwriters all over the globe, so you can absolutely join Songtrust if you do not have a valid US Social Security Number or are not a US citizen. After you sign up, you will need to fill out a W8-BEN form, which can be found on the right hand side of the Tax Documentation page. Why? We are bound by law to require this documentation, as any income generated in the United States is required to be taxed by the US Government.

For directions on how to fill out the W8-BEN, please visit www.irs.gov
