    I'm a Linkshare affiliate and saw a thread on LS forum which brings me here. I am a non-us citizen (and nonresident) who incorporated in US and want to signup a CJ affiliate account for my US company. So, which country should I choose? USA or my own country?

    Thanks but I have some questions about W-9 TAX form (or maybe W-8)

    1. Which address should I use in the W-9 form?
    the foreign non-US address (my home address)when I incorporated or my agents address or an US mail address?

    2. Which box should I check? Individual/Sole proprietor, Corporation or Other: LLC?

    3. Should I check 'Exempt from backup withholding'?

    4. I found the following line on W-9 form:
    Caution: A disregarded domestic entity that has a foreign owner must use the appropriate Form W-8.

    So should I use form W-8?

    For what I know, if yours is a delaware LLC where you are the only member, you will be tax at you individual income, not company. So you fill up W8, not W9. And you also doesn't need to submit any tax return for your company.

    That's why I suggest that you receive your check at your home country and send it back to US bank to cash the check. That will reduce a lot of risk of being attached to US tax, I don't think you want to.

    (DISCLAIMER: I am not an giving legal advice here! You need to do your research well. I might be totally wrong)

    Do you mean I should sign up as an US company and then FAX them W-8? Or forget my LLC and just select my own country to sign up as an individual?

    I will sign up as individual and have the name on check as company. You can change name on check easily with CJ (also minimum payment amount)
