    Linkshare and Tax ID?
    Hi everyone,

    Slightly embarassing question. I'm trying to sign up to LinkShare, and the form I need to fill out requires that I give my Tax ID. Where would I find this information?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Id???????
    If you don't know where to find your tax ID number then you don't have one. This is a number issued by the UNCLE to companies for tax id (filing purposes) Individuals use their social security number. (But remember, never divulge your SS number to anyone.)

    Ok, so as an individual (and not a company), I'm supposed to enter my Social Security number? Do all affiliate networks (Linshare, CJ, Clickbank, etc.) require that you provide this information to them? Call me naive, but I wasn't expecting such a thing!

    They are required by law to have your number if they pay you $600 or more in a year. They need it to tell Uncle how much they paid you. And they get it in advance even though that's not required. But it's normal.

    Makes sense - thanks missdonna!

    Except now both Linkshare and CJ's sites appear to be down - sheesh!
