Why am I being asked to complete a U.S. tax form using the online tax interview?

Symptoms

  • I am an Asset Store Publisher
  • I have been asked to complete a U.S. tax form

Cause

Under U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) tax rules, Unity is required to secure certain tax information from our U.S. and non-U.S. publishers to determine whether or not payment is subject to U.S. tax withholdings. The IRS has published tax forms that can be used to collect this tax information.

Resolution

Instead of asking you to fill out U.S. tax forms that can often be confusing, we worked with Tax Identity Solutions LLC, a third-party tax provider, to develop an online tax interview that is more user-friendly. The form provides a step-by-step process to gather the information, which we will pass along to the IRS.

You can access the online tax interview through the link provided in your email.

More Information

If you do not complete the tax interview, we will not be able to make our payment to you. Please complete the tax interview at your earliest convenience to avoid delays in your payment.
