Hey @TheBlueHorse, I understand your frustration…
Could you please tell me to who (what email address) did you send the request?

I think that was posted somewhere last week. Take a look in the main ‘non-US author’ thread.

Edit: You need to request it apparently, so I’m assuming that’s what you’ve done already? Hopefully they’ll get it to you soon.

“Hello again! First up, a general announcement for everyone who requested a letter from Envato support their W-7 application (attn: @MrMattMusic, @MusicPremium and @TopStudio). This document is now ready and available to collect from taxinfo@envato.com. In your email to taxinfo, please include the same full name you have entered on your W-7 form (usernames are not acceptable). Thanks again for your patience!”

Every non-US author needs this letter from Envato? I thought we just fill in the W-8 and that’s it… Can someone explain? This is frustrating.

Same we also just fill the W-8 and nothing else? :expressionless:

You need it if you have to apply to the IRS for an ITIN number. Usually if you don’t have a foreign tax ID. If you have a foreign tax ID, then (in theory) you shouldn’t need an ITIN.

I think France was brought up as an example, as their tax records just go on names and dates of birth, there’s no country specific tax number.

If the information in your profile is accurate about where you live (Cayman Islands), then just fill the W8 form and choose not to provide a Tax ID Number.
