FAQs

Submit your tax info

Why am I being asked to complete this form?
We need your tax information because you are paid through Google entities located in Ireland, Singapore or the US. Where Google is required to withhold taxes (if any) on our payments to you, submitting your tax information allows the correct applicable withholding rate to be applied and ensure that timely payments are made.
What happens if I don’t complete this form?

If local law requires taxes to be withheld, your payout may be subject to a higher withholding tax deduction.

What's the status of my tax info?

In review

Your submitted tax information is being reviewed. If additional documents are required to validate your tax information or verify your identity, we notify you on your 'Payments' page and by email.

Action required

Further tax information is required to verify your identity or the accuracy of the information that's already submitted.

Accepted

Your tax information has been submitted, reviewed and accepted.

Declined

Your tax information may be declined because the document that you uploaded may have been:

  • Blurry or unclear
  • Expired or not a type that we accept
  • Missing pages or information, such as a signature

If your information is declined, we notify you in the Google payments centre and by email. Make sure that the documents you upload are clear, current and complete.

Proof of tax residency

What documents do I need to prepare to fill in my tax info?

You need to submit a document that proves your country of tax residency, such as a tax residency certificate.

Some examples of documents that prove tax residency:  

  • Latest tax residency certificate
  • Tax exemption letter
  • Tax registration document

To be valid, tax residency certificates must typically: 

  • Be certified by the local tax authority 
  • State that you are a tax resident of the country for tax treaty purposes
  • State the period that the tax residency certificate is valid for

In Ireland and Singapore, certain documents can prove tax residency. 

Ireland

For organisations:

  • Tax residency certificate

For individuals:

  • Unexpired national ID card issued by government with local address that shows that you are a tax resident of the issuing country
  • Taxpayer ID card 
  • Tax residency certificate

Singapore

For organisations and individuals:

  • A tax residency certificate issued by your local government
What is tax residency?
A business or individual's tax residency country/region is where they're responsible for paying taxes. The country in which you reside isn't necessarily your tax residency country. To determine your status, consult a tax adviser or your country/region's tax residency criteria.
Why are you asking for proof of tax residency?
Google requires proof of tax residency to determine our withholding obligation (if any) on the payments made to you.
If I have questions while I complete the form, who can I contact for help?

If you need help to resolve technical issues, contact Google Support.

However, Google can't provide you with tax advice. If you need tax advice, please speak to a professional tax adviser.

What characters are accepted in the name and address fields of my tax info?
All standard English-language letters, numbers and punctuation.
Can I get a preview of the tax info that I've filled in?
You can get a preview of your tax information after you submit it.
What if I’m not the right person to submit tax information?
If you're not the right person to submit tax information, you can forward the email to the correct person within your organisation to sign in. That person must have administrator access to the Google payments profile. They can then use the information provided in the email to submit tax information. To give the signatory administrator access to the payments profile, follow the steps in the article, Manage users in your payments profile.
How do I determine whether I qualify for a tax treaty benefit?
Please consult a tax adviser or your tax residency country’s guidance to determine what income tax treaties are in place and whether the type of income that you receive from Google is included in a specific tax treaty provision.
Can Google help advise me if I qualify for a tax treaty?

Unfortunately, Google can’t advise you on this matter. You may need to seek professional tax advice to determine your treaty eligibility. Google makes a tax assessment based on the information that you have provided.

Do I need to complete the form if I’m not claiming treaty benefits?
Even if you're not claiming any treaty benefits, Google may still be legally required to withhold and report taxes on income earned through our products. Therefore, your tax information may still be required.
Can I complete the process on my tablet or smartphone?
We highly recommend completing this process using a laptop/desktop.
