What if I don't have a tax I.D.?
If you are a U.S. business or individual, or a non-U.S. business with U.S. Activities, as described on our AdSense Tax Information Page, and you do not have a tax I.D. such as a Taxpayer Identification Number or Social Security Number, you'll need to acquire one. We suggest that you obtain your TIN as soon as possible. Please note that the process of obtaining a TIN may take several weeks. You can visit the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) website for more information on obtaining a U.S. TIN: IRS information page.
You may not be required to submit a U.S. tax ID if you do not have U.S. activities and you certify this by submitting the 'Certification of No U.S. Activities' form. Please visit our Tax Information page for more details.
