As you are part of the Medium Partner Program and intend to earn money from Medium, Medium will be required to issue you a 1099-MISC tax form. This is because the US Internal Revenue Service (IRS) requires Medium to issue form 1099-MISC based on earnings thresholds.
In order to complete the 1099-MISC (and then send copies both to you and to the IRS), we will first need to collect your taxpayer information through either a W-9 or W8-BEN form. See our other Help Center articles for further details on how to submit your taxpayer information.
Note: We are not able to give advice on how or when you should file your taxes. We recommend that you contact a tax professional for any questions or recommendations.
