    Hi all,
    I have a question about US 1099 tax form.
    I'm an international affiliate and I work together with a US person. We share a single CJ account. my question is that whether the 1099 form the US person gets will only include his received payment based on his SSN?
    All other payments paid to non-US individual will not be subject to US tax.
    Any opinion is appreciated.

    According to this you have to pay.

    Ask cj.com or your accountant first.

    -----

    Every nonresident alien individual, nonresident fiduciary, and foreign corporation with a United States income, including income that is effectively connected with the conduct of a trade or business in the United States, must file a united States income tax return.

    It's written in small print on the bottom of the PDF.

    So I think its time for you to fill this form out, join the club.

    actually there's a W-8 form for foreign publishers to fill out. Basically I think this form serves as a proof of foreign status and not subject to US tax. I learned that if foreign publishers don't submit this form, CJ may withhold 30% of the commission.

    I'm still wating for CJ's answer and I will also talk to my accoutant.

    Hi Jrami,
    I was told by CJ that they will put all the payments on the US person's 1099 form, no matter which country the payments have been sent to.
    Sounds very unreasonable to me.
    But after talk to my accoutant, she said no matter what number CJ will put in US person's 1099 form, the US person will only need to pay the tax for the actual amount he gets, as long as there's good record to show IRS he didn't receive all the money claimed in the 1099 form.

    Thanks for update!

    Well that sounds good for you bad for him.

    That means he has to show proof to IRS he did not receive certain amounts.

    But if he says he sent you 60%, 70% or more sounds like you both might win, cause you pay no tax and he pays little or no tax.

    I think I'll hire an offshore partner ???
