If you see the yellow pop-up box on your profile page, select “Click here” in that box. Or you can simply scroll down the page and then click the “Update tax information” button at the bottom of the page (see screenshot below).
This will open a secure window for you to complete the tax form.

Note that you are able book travel before submitting the form, however, we won’t be able to process your compensation payment until after the form has been submitted.Need help completing the form? Please check the official support guide from the IRS website, which is available in seven languages.
