App World tax documents

Under the Account Details section in the AppWorld vendor portal in the Payment Info section I see that there's an area for uploading tax documents.  In my case there's a "Canadian Tax Election", W8BEN, and W9 option in the dropdown.


Maybe I'm not looking in the right spot, but I can't find an explanation anywhere of what exactly I need to upload here, or whether I need to at all.  Particularly the Canadian Tax Election document - I have no idea what this document would be.  Is it something provided by RIM?


I'm a Canadian developer, so the US tax forms presumably aren't relevant to me.


Any help figuring this out would be great.

Hi froboz, ignites,


Best bet would be for one (or both) of you to send an inquiry to customersupport@blackberrycommerce.rim.com.  This is direct to the BlackBerry Commerce team and they can provide some guidance/explanation regarding the required tax documentation.
