Question about filling the tax form

www Member Posts: 4
I would like to fill the form for tax. I don't know which one I should choose between W-8BEN or W8233.
Here is my brief information.
I'm individual so I do not have my own business and I'm gonna work online as part-time for Pactera.
I'm korean actually living in South Korea.

Well I don't know I didn't need to fill this form when I've worked for Appen though but I should do now so, anyway.
I'll look forward to the reply.
Best regards,

    Hey @www

    Please note that Payoneer only acts as a tax form collection entity on behalf of certain paying companies.

    I'll recommend that you check Appen, for information regarding your eligibility/requirement to receive a tax form. If you are unsure how to complete your tax form, please consult a tax adviser.

    Hi @Aron_Payoneer ,
    I asked Appen about that but I didn't get any satisfying answer though.
    Anyway, my article was a question which form to do.
    As I understand your reply, I don't need to submit any form because I'm not in an entity. Is that it?
    Thank you in advance.

    hi there @www

    Please use the "Tax Wizard". This is accessible by choosing "Tax Forms" in the "Activity" tab of My Account. The Wizard will appear on the main page of the tax form and it will take you, step by step by leading questions to the relevant tax form for them.

    Here is the link to the Taxes FAQ This should help you figure out which form to use. If this is not helpful we recommend you reach out to a tax professional.
