Taxes for Canadians

Hi !

I am from Canada. When I registered my KDP account, I filled in my SIN (Social Insurance Number). After registration it was indicated that "Tax Information is complete" and "Applicable withholding rate: 0%"

The question is: Do I still need to apply for EIN or TIN ???

Thanks

No! Very recently (like this fall) they changed the rules. If it says your tax info is complete and your withholding is zero, you are good to go.

(Note, though this is true for Canada and the UK, it may not be for most countries.)

Just bear in mind that this system couldn't work if the two tax authorities weren't exchanging information. You may be sure that the Canadian outfit will know all about your US earnings, so if they are taxable, be sure you report them!
