With the rewards program (secret new rules and changes), there are also new requrements about tax. As a non-American living and working outside U.S., I have no idea what the W-7 form means, and I need help.
Is it correct that I MUST fill out this form and send it (to the IRS?) in order to receive rewards?
Will that make me a US tax payer?
How will they handle that?
How should I pay US taxes?
What sort of documentation do I need to submit? I sure as hell won’t mail them my original passport!
Where can I get professional guidance about this (without having tpay hundreds of $ for a consultant)?
If I don’t do this tax thing (in time), what will happen to those rewards that I earn (but won’t get because DH won’t pay until they have my tax#)?
Will the money just be lost forever?
Will the money be donated to charity?
Will the money go back to DH?
Will the money be cached until DH gets my tax# and then released to me?
