I signed in my Fiverr profile yesterday and this is what I came across. “Check if you need to fill out Form W-9 to keep your Gigs active. You got 30 days to check”.
Before I read it properly my phone rang and my friend (who is not from (USA) was shouting all at the top of her lungs and said,
“Do you know Fiverr is gonna hide gig impressions, clicks again”?
“Yeah, I was just looking at the top barrrrrr” (While saying BAR, I looked at my Fiverr profile and found that it was nothing like hiding gigs impressions – it was to fill a tax form”!
I merely hold my laugh as I didn’t want to make her feel that she was ignorant.
Anyhow, I just told her that it is jut to fill out Fiverr form and which is a normal and pretty simple process!

5. Less Than 18
Fiverr has requested a w-9 form. I’m just 16 but don’t pay any taxes in New York. so, what should I do now?
Fill out a W-9 form and mail it to them. Why else do you believe you are exempt from paying taxes, is a key question.
I’ve seen children as young as ten years old that owe taxes. One amongst my clients was indeed a 16-year-old supermodel who owed the government a large sum of money.
You will only not pay income tax if your earnings were smaller than your parents’ tax allowance.
“Typically, a child filing as both a dependent is unable to claim the entire standard deduction but should instead claim a lesser amount.”
The decreased personal allowance is calculated based on the child’s earnings, which itself is calculated as the sum of something like the child’s salary, wages, bonuses, self-employment income, and also the percentage of scholarships utilised for living costs, + $300.
The lowest deduction is $950, and the part payment is indeed the ordinary standard amount for just a single individual, which would have been $12,000 in 2019.
In either scenario, if a dependency is blind, he can increase his deduction by $1,450 ($1,150 if coupled).
