W-9 and W-8BEN Tax Form Submission

edited July 6 in Tax Withholding

Disclaimer: Lulu employees cannot provide tax advice. We recommend you carefully research tax requirements for your locale and consult a tax professional.

Upon approval of your distribution license agreement you agree to submit a completed W-9 or a W-8BEN form (attached below). You can also find the forms on the United State Internal Revenue Services website.

The information on your submitted tax forms must match the payee information you entered under Payment Contacts

Important Note: Once we receive a completed tax form (W-9 or W-8BEN), the payee's Name, Address, Taxpayer Type, and Tax Identification Number will be locked. To update this information, you must contact Lulu Support and click I Still Need Help to open a support request. Please attach your updated tax form before submitting the request.

US Tax Payers:

Please complete and return tax form W-9 (attached below).

You may submit your form directly from our email support page. Please visit Lulu Support and click I Still Need Help to open a support request. Attach your completed tax form before submitting the request.

Non-US Tax Payers:

When a Lulu author is considered to be a non-US resident and their book includes a free Lulu ISBN, the Internal Revenue Service requires Lulu to withhold US income taxes on any sales delivered to the US. The standard tax rate for these sales is 30%.  To apply reduced tax treaty rates (if available) you must submit a completed W-8BEN form (or W-8BEN-E for non-individuals).
 
A valid W-8 form includes a US tax identification number on line 5 or a non-US tax identification number on line 6 (line 8 for the W-8BEN-E).  

You may submit your form directly from our email support page. Please visit Lulu Support and click I Still Need Help to open a support request. Attach your completed tax form before submitting the request.

You may also mail or fax the completed and signed W-8BEN form:
