Once you complete the Sign up step, it is mandatory to file the tax form in order to receive your commissions from Bluehost. You can file the tax form right after completing the Sign up step or you can file later after login to your Bluehost account under Settings >tax form

Basically there two tax forms W-8 BEN and W-9. W-9 form for the United States citizens or business and W-8 BEN form for the Non US citizens or business. A US person knows how to fill W-9 form. But when it comes to Non US person or business which is different from W9 form, they face a little bit problem to fill this form. Let's start filling W-8 BEN form.

At first you need to select No option for the first question: Are you a U.S. citizen or other U.S. person, including a resident alien individual? Once you select No, the displayed tax form will automatically changed to W-8 BEN form.  Instruction for W-8BEN Form
Start filling W-8 BEN form 

W-8BEN form has four section and affiliate has to fill the necessary fields very carefully. 

1. Identification of Beneficial Owner
2. Claim of Tax Treaty Benefits  
3. Certification
4. Signature

1. Identification of Beneficial Owner
Let's start filling the W-8BEN form with your name, Country, Permanent Residence, Mailing Address. Till this point everything looks very simple and you can easily fill all these fields. Read also : How to make your blog Push Notification ready.

The most confusional part arrives after that when you see various fields like SSN (Social Security Number), ITIN, Foreign Tax Identifying Number, Reference number(s). Now you are confused what to fill in these fields. Since you are not a US person, you don't have SSN, ITIN, Foreign Tax Identifying Number and Reference number(s). Believe me leave all the fields SSN, ITIN, Foreign Tax Identifying Number, Reference number(s) blank.  No need to enter anything in these fields.

Earlier there is another field which EIN (Employer Identification Number) where affiliate has to enter 9 zeros (000000000) but  currently Bluehost updated tax form and removed that field. Read also : How to get 100GB Google drive space.

Claim of tax treaty benefits

In the section no need to enter anything. Just leave all the fields blank and proceed to Certification.

Here you just need to select the checkbox against "Yes, I have read and acknowledge the certification".

This is almost the final section of the W-8 BEN form. Now you need to sign the tax form. In the Signature of beneficial owner field just type your name which acts as your signature. Date is auto filled. Leave "Capacity in which acting" field blank and click Submit tax form. Read also : Boost AdSense earning by blocking low paying ads.
Once you have submitted the tax form, you can't modify the tax form. It will take couple of days to verify your submission. In case of rejection of your tax form you will get notification in your registered email address. After that you need to file tax form again from your Bluehost account under Settings > tax form.

If you have not joined Bluehost Affiliate Program then join now and start promoting Bluehost as text link or banner ad and make decent commissions.

That's it! Cheers!
