AMS HAS NO FISCAL ID?!!

I have asked KDP more than 5 times for a tax ID number for AMS in order to do my tax returns here in Spain. Because the bill for advertising includes no tax, here in Spain I must report this bill and pay additional taxes similar to customs taxes but for importing services. Anyway, Amazon will not provide me with a tax number for AMS which may get me into trouble with the spanish tax authorities. Each time they eventually answer, they say AMS has no EIN and then start spouting generic tax requirements, which as we all know if infuriating.

In Spain, I NEED some kind of tax ID for AMS or Amazon or whoever I am paying when I buy advertising. If AMS is not a company, then they should tell me which ID I should be using. Don't tell me that the company I am paying money to has no tax number or identification number.

Usually a tax ID number is the ID for paying taxes to the government such as a person in the USA would have a Social Security number to pay their personal income tax. I think you are wanting a business operating ID number.

AMS is a division of Amazon is all I can tell you. This link may give you some information and possibly some way to contact higher offices. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amazon.com

Thanks for the link. Next time they send me a cut and paste answer, I will try asking them for a business operating ID instead.

Have to answer my own question here. If anyone needs it for their tax records Amazon Digital Services LLC's tax ID is 83-0417755. Which is what I'm told is relevant to AMS.

Wow, and I thought the US had the craziest tax system anywhere. But charging import duty on an advertisement is a classic bit of bureaucratic flimflam.

Good luck! -- NJ

AMS HAS NO FISCAL ID?!!

Well, you appear to have found one.

Now, about its EGO and SUPEREGO...

You're probably okay so long as you don't go making Faustian bargains on distant planets.
