Tax information for American living in Canada

    I know I need to send HubPages tax information, but I think my situation is a bit unusual.

    I'm an American citizen who's also a Canadian PR (permanent resident), currently living in Canada.  The tax forms on HubPages' website don't take this into consideration.   

    If I choose the "I'm an American citizen" option, I'm left with forms I can't properly fill out because the forms want certain pieces of US-specific information (such as state, ZIP code, etc).  I can't choose the "I'm not an American citizen" option because that'd probably be seen as fraud by the IRS.

    I've checked the FAQ and this situation doesn't come up.  So I'm not sure how to proceed from here.

        Thanks for your reply. 

        When do you think you guys might have this figured out?  I understand it may take time (this is an unusual and most likely complex issue to deal with), but I'd just like to be kept updated.

          Thanks for checking in, Mike! We received an update about this last night so your timing is perfect. Because you are US citizen, you still need to submit a W-9. Please send us one by mail and provide your permanent address in Canada. You can find mailing instructions here: https://hubpages.com/my/earnings/taxes/Hard-Copy

    I would contact hubpages staff and ask them how to proceed:<)
