Tax Form & Instructor Information

Go to solution

Hi Udemy team members and instructors,

 

I got a request related to Tax information submission!

There are many fields that I couldn't find the information but it is so hard to chat or connect with Udemy team? Please help me!

 

- Udemy instructor ID ==> I find in email and in my profile but I can't find it! Can you help me where to find this info?

- US. TIN type: I'm out of US, so I will choose "US. TIN not applicale", is it right?

 

Thanks for your support!

Ryan Holmes

For the Udemy Instructor ID: I too read that I would get an email with this ID number, but no email came. But I found my ID on my Instructor page, in the orange box that said I needed to fill out my tax info. See screenshot.

For the TIN, I think you're right, a US TIN would not be applicable if you're outside the US. The 2 options (US TIN or SSN) don't fit. I know that a TIN (Taxpayer Identification Number) is an identification number used by the United States Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in the administration of tax laws.

A TIN can simply be a person's SSN, or 
Employer Identification Number (EIN), Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (INIT), Taxpayer Identification Number for Pending U.S. Adoptions (ATIN), or Preparer Taxpayer Identification Number (PTIN).

A Social Security number (SSN) is issued by the SSA whereas all other TINs are issued by the IRS. (source: IRS.gov)

I am having the same issue. Instructions to fill out the tax form are needed. There are too many things that are not easy to find. I never received an email with my instructor ID. We should be able to access it from our account. And TIN???? What's that?

I did!!! I sent in a request to the support team at Udemy. They gave me my ID, and told me to read an article on filling out the form. I read it many times, but that did not help with all the other issues with filling out that form. The site that deals with the form is not Udemy, it's another company that takes care of that form. The form has issues - and I mean technical. For instance, I filled out my name correctly, but when I filled in the EIN info it changed my name. I did it over and over trying different combinations. The form has issues, and no article or support team seems to be focusing on that. I ended up submitting my form, with the wrong name. I would really like it if someone in tech can fix it, because as I said, I can't fix it on my end using that form.

Sadly, there's no one at Udemy that can help you fill out your US Government tax forms. The risk that some of those forms would contain mistakes, and that some financial consequences such as taxes or penalties would happen, is too great.

 

Everyone is in the same boat. I had to stuggle to fill out the form and even when I submitted, I was not sure. But I did it.

Thank you. That makes alot of sense. Glad to know I'm not the only one that had trouble. I wish they would let us fill it out by hand, then scan it, to make sure we get the right information on there. Oh well.

I done a screen capture of final form before submitting. I found it quite difficult as well. 

 

Best of luck

I remember there was an option to view and download a copy of the final form - which I did. Screen shots work too. I wish whoever is in charge of that form would actually read these comments and make it easier. It also needs to be fixed because it has issues. So far Udemy just answers us assuming it is us that is the problem. No one addresses the fact that the form has problems. I'm especially frustrated that you can't enter a business name without the main tax payer name changing. That should not happen.

Did you apply as an individual? I'm currently in the process of filling out my tax info and it seems like these are the steps. 

  1. Submit original documents to the IRS to prove your identity and foreign status OR find a certifying acceptance agent (CAA) to prove your identity and foreign status.
  2. Once certified, you can use the W7 form to apply for an Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN). 
  3. Use the ITIN on Udemy's tax form page in order for them to submit a 1040 form on your behalf. 

I see that there's an option to put that the TIN doesn't apply to you, but I can't see how that's the case given that we fall under non-resident alien status. I'm worried that by choosing this option and by not providing a ITIN that we may not be entitled to the Canada-US tax treaty which NILs any tax. 

 

Thoughts?

Hi, 

I am also non us citizen, You don't need to fill tin,  just check tin not available.

In that form the main thing is your name and udemy instructor I'd and signature at last,  rest udemy will take care. 

 

Thanks

I am a Canadian Instructor and found this very confusing as well! I filled in "US. Tin not applicable" but the next page with 5 different forms to complete I am lost? I did send an email to support for assistance as well.
