Tax Interview

U.S. tax regulations require Amazon to collect information about your tax status under U.S. law using our short online tax interview accessible from the KDP Account page. This is because Amazon issues payments that can be regarded as income. We must receive and validate your tax identity information before you can update existing books or publish new books in the Kindle store.

The interview guides you through a step-by-step process gathering all necessary information required to establish your tax identity and generates a Form W-9 for U.S. publishers or a Form W-8 for Non-U.S. publishers.

Please follow these steps to begin our online Tax Interview:

1. Sign in: http://kdp.amazon.com
2. Click "(Your Name)'s Account" at the top right
3. Scroll down to the "Tax Information" section
4. Click "Complete Tax Information." If you're updating your tax information, click "View/Provide Tax Information."

Answer all questions and enter all information requested during the interview. You may retake the interview anytime your information or circumstances change.
