      In the USA a W9 is used only to verify your social security number and name. It has little to do with income taxes.
      You may be meaning "1099", which shows how much you were paid  as a business owner or independent contractor.
      Last I heard Paypal sends out or makes available a 1099 for amounts that were paid to you.

      We talk about tax forms being issued in the FAQ here.

    If you did not earn in that tax year you have nothing to declare.  There is no such thing as a W9 declaring 0.00 earnings.  The tax office will not want anything like that.

    Thanks. I'm European and I'm trying to do the right thing. I appreciate your help!

    So long as you are in a EU nation with a tax treaty, you will declare income there the same as you usually do.

    My understanding it that a 1099 doesn't need to be sent out until you have earned $1500 from a business. We are considered contract workers here. Hubpages says that Paypal issues the 1099's. Well they don't, because I have never gotten one from them and I have earned over that much in different years.  I just figure my total by going to my Paypal account and adding it all up.

    Indeed. Declaring it with no 1099 is a pain. What Paypal does is give you a way to find out what amount to declare. They gave certainly never sent me a 1099
