PSA: Uphold W-9 Requirements (at least for USA)

Hey all, so today I receive the following from Uphold

What irritates me is that they never sent a first or second notice. This was the very first time they contacted me and they claimed it to be the third and final.

I’m not sure how many others might not be receiving messages from Uphold. That said, I figured I’d give out a Public Service Announcement (PSA) to advise that everyone makes sure they have everything updated and have been checking emails. This is especially the case if you’re in the United States, as it seems they are trying to update information for tax purposes. If you are in the United States and haven’t done a W9 form, you may need to get it done.

You can see more about this at https://support.uphold.com/hc/en-us/articles/9814296851227-W9-Tax-Form

Just hoping to make this known so hopefully people can check in on their accounts and make sure everything is in good standing. Especially if they really are going to be “quick” on restricting accounts for not getting it done. If in doubt, I’d say to try to reach out to them just to have them verify everything looks good.

I never got an email about this, but there was a notification about it in the uphold app at the beginning of the month. maybe they counted that as the first attempt.

I received multiple notices about submitted the additional paperwork. Even received a notice after submitting the form.
