Yes — if you are paid greater than $600 in a calendar year. The IRS (US taxing authority) requires us to collect W9 information (social security number, address, etc.) for US tax payers making greater than $600 in a calendar year, and a Form W-8BEN for non-US taxpayers. Hyperwallet, as our representative, will collect this information. This information is kept highly secure and is not transmitted to the IRS.
