Why Do You Need My Tax Identification Information?

Songtrust is required to have W-9,W-8, 8-BEN, or some form of tax identification in order to pay you.

In order to send you your royalty payment, we are legally obligated to obtain your tax identification information or tax ID number. This is a strict requirement enforced by the International Revenue Service (IRS) that is designed to help the IRS track income.

It is very important that this information is completed on your dashboard under "Tax Documentation" so we can pay you once you start earning royalties. It is also very important that your address is up to date.

If you do update your address, please do so in your account settings and submit a support form, so we can ensure the update has been properly made.
