I am a US citizen living outside of the US which tax form should I fill out?
I have not paid US taxes, I don't earn income in the US nor do I live or own anything in the US.
Based on the instruction on the W-8BEN if you are a US citizen you should fill out a W-9. Your income from Patreon may be subject to 1099 reporting. Please review our help guide to find out if you'll receive a 1099-K: Will I receive a 1099-K form?
Please refer to the W-8BEN form for more instructions, here: Instructions for Form W-8BEN. Consult with a tax professional to determine your tax responsibilities.
