I have submitted two of my extensions to magento marketplace. It passed

  1. Technical
  2. QA Review

But I got stuck in a "Marketing issue" it says "Missing Tax Forms"

I had done research and finally find out I have to submit a form W-8BEN as I am from India & an individual developer.

Now I couldn't find a link in magento where I can submit this form.

I have two question

  1. Do I need to fill and prepare a scan copy of this form?
  2. To submit form is there any link or i need to send mail to marketplace@magento.com ?

I found one question here relevant to me but it has no answers.

Yes, I got the same message when I upload my first extension on the marketplace.

You can simply fill the form by online pdf editor and send it to marketplace@magento.com with subject: Tax Information for Magento Marketplace.

After 2 days I got this mail from Marketplace. And then my module will pass Marketing Review.

Hello,

Thank you for contacting Magento Marketplace Support. The Marketplace team has received the tax forms and filed in our system. There is no further action required at the current time by your team regarding this issue.

Thank you,

These are the rules for form

  • Please complete a W-9 Form and scan the completed form and return to Magento
  • Magento will prepare and file a 1099-K with IRS and will send you a copy

1. Are you are currently paying taxes in the U.S.?

  • If yes, you can either:

    • Complete a W-8ECI form (return completed form to Magento) and Magento will not need to withhold on your behalf
    • Not complete a W-8ECI form, and Magento will need to withhold up to 30% (depending on your country of residence) of the 70% revenue share from the developer and remit to IRS
  • If no:

    • and the country where you are located DOES have a tax treaty (https://www.irs.gov/businesses/international-businesses/united-states-income-tax-treaties-a-to-z) with the U.S. government, have you completed a W-8BEN (individual developer) or W-8BEN-E (business developer) Form?
      • If yes, return completed W-8BEN (individual developer) or W-8BEN-E (business developer) form to Magento and Magento will withhold a percentage in accordance with IRS per your country of residence
      • If no, Magento needs to withhold the maximum of 30% of the 70% revenue share from the developer and remit to IRS
    • nd the country where you are located DOES NOT have a tax treaty with the U.S government, Magento needs to withhold the maximum of 30% of the 70% revenue share from the developer and remit to IRS

      1. Magento will prepare and file a 1042-S with IRS and will send you a copy

Best Of Luck.
