If you're based in the US or partner with US brands, you won't be able to withdraw and receive any payouts from your account until you submit an electronic tax document in order to comply with US tax law. Income earned on Impact does not have any taxes withheld from it.

Impact requires you submit one of the following tax forms electronically:

  • Form W-9 for all partners based in the United States (for all individuals and entities).

  • Form W-8BEN for those not in the United States partnered with brands based in the United States (i.e., you're operating by yourself and not operating as an entity in your country).

  • Form W-8BEN-E for entities not in the United States partnered with brands based in the United States (i.e., you're operating as an organization or company in your country).

Where to add your tax form in Impact:

  • From the top navigation bar, select Balance.

  • Select Tax Documents.

  • Select the tax form you need to submit from the list, then select Continue.

  • Complete and submit the document using the DocuSign frame on the screen.

You'll receive an email once we've received and approved your tax form. Make sure your name and mailing address are correct on your submitted tax form, as this is where we mail the Form 1099-MISC at the end of the tax year.
