    Hello Jake,

    So, since I am not a US resident – or national for that matter, I won’t receive such a form and I won’t have to mess with the IRS…Did I get that right? What happens if I have made more than 600 USD (hypothetical question since I am brand new to this site)? Won’t I have any tax obligations next year no matter how much I make?

    Best regards,


    • Jake

      Hi Dimitris–if you aren’t a US citizen then you do not need to take into account any of this information, as it only pertains to US citizens.
