Barbara Tarn (barbaragtarn) | 1185 comments it's not Smashwords, it's you. You are an individual or a business. Check how to fill the form here http://www.stepbystepselfpublishing.n....
(download the PDF sample on how to fill it).
IF SW doesn't send you the letter to include, get the Amazon one here https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.c...
and fill it with your name.
Best!

You need ONE ITIN, it's your tax identification number, and you need to put it on all the W8BEN you send to the various retailers... You'll need different W8BEN for each, but only one ITIN. And follow also Ross's post - I had to go to London to get mine, but I live in Italy! :)

Hi Barbara. Thank you so much for your comment. I have an additional question. I can use the same ITIN obtained for Smashwords to publish with Amazon or I need a new ITIN to publish with Amazon.
