Presently, United States law requires Entertainment Earth to collect tax information from affiliates who are U.S. citizens, U.S. residents, or U.S. corporations. If you're not a U.S. citizen or resident but your business is taxable in the U.S., you need to provide us with a completed IRS Form W-8ECI. We're required by law to have this information on file.
When filling out your Entertainment Earth affiliate program application, please note:
- If you're an individual, your Tax ID Number is your Social Security number. Your Tax Name is your name.
- If you represent a non-individual, such as a corporation, partnership, or non-profit organization, the Tax ID Number is the organization's IRS employer identification number (EIN) and the Tax Name is the name of the organization.
- If you represent a sole proprietorship, your Tax ID Number is either your Social Security number or the sole proprietorship's IRS employer identification number (EIN). The Tax Name is your personal name - it's not the business name of the sole proprietorship.
