If companies request a W-9, do you report as a sole proprietor? If so, are you still exempt from taxation if you reside outside the country for 330 days?
April 17, 2019
One of the companies I freelance for wants me to fill out a W-9 tax form. I am a bit wary about sending around my SSN, so I was going to register as a sole proprietor so I could use an EIN. But, I believe that would make it more of a business to business transaction, no? My fear is that I will have to pay full taxes despite being out of the country for more than 330 days, which I believe exempts me from tax under 90k. Can anyone guide me on this?
