I have to wonder if I don't see my sales from publisher(s) like I should because I didn't give them an ITIN or I didn't fill out the W8BEN form.
It is possible that I need this US Taxpayer information. Ack! I've been going all these years without having the proper documentation and wondering why I don't get paid!!!
If I've been stupid all these years, then yes, of course, I feel very stupid now. If I'm feeling stupid even if I'm wrong about the aforementioned supposition, then yes, I am still stupid. Just feeling stupid.
I don't think I have an ITIN right now. If I do - I've completely forgotten about it. I should probably get one.
And I feel stupid.
