Re: Does anyone have saved copy of IMVU's Unity API?

I found IMVUnity_0_3_1.unitypackage in my downloads folder:
https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BwgZ- ... WZTSGJBZGs

But I think it has been abandoned as Segallion was the driving force behind it.

Re: TAX hit for NON US citizens earning via create program?

Someone was asking over there a little while ago about this stuff so I directed them to this thread. I can't remember the name but I guess that might be them.

Re: Pose Spot remover PPC

I didn't compare the files because I don't know where the other one is, but when you save you need to select 'all files' and manually type in the file extension (.xsf) or it will just save it as a notepad file.

Re: TAX hit for NON US citizens earning via create program?

You won't get banned for a couple of rerates. Unless they were trigger doodles or something. Were they trigger doodles? :P I guess the main benefit of linking your alts is account security - if something happens to one account you can contact them on another and they'll know it's you.

Re: TAX hit for NON US citizens earning via create program?

I can't remember exactly how I did it, but I do have one alt verified.

First you should register your alts in extended reports -- https://secure.imvu.com/merchant/alts/

Then I think I just went to verify my alt account and added a note saying what my main was.

Re: TAX hit for NON US citizens earning via create program?

I think they are a lot more flexible with MASA caps than they used to be. They will generally let you go a little over, maybe as you hadn't made a request before they gave you more leeway. I always found their MASA was generally a bit lower than what I calculated myself. I contacted Varsha about it ...

Re: TAX hit for NON US citizens earning via create program?

Oh sorry, I forgot to reply to that. I *think* MASA covers all your accounts. So you don't have a separate MASA for each account. But I can't really remember things anymore. I don't have the energy to go searching right now but if you do here you go..... http://www.imvu.com/catalog/modules.php?op=mo...

Re: TAX hit for NON US citizens earning via create program?

Yep, that's it! Oh and don't forget the part where we lost two weeks' income because we had to wait for the pend to start over again. That was SUPER FUN.

I feel like when things are going smoothly the system works pretty well. But the moment something out of the ordinary happens, you're farked.

5% is the rate for Australia, I think UK is 0%

Sorry :oops:

Re: TAX hit for NON US citizens earning via create program?

I don't know about an ITIN, but I know that if you don't supply your tax details they will take the full 30%. To get the tax treaty reduction you must provide your tax identification number on the W-8 form. That's what I did and I think what everyone I've spoken to about it has. I have a couple of U...

Re: TAX hit for NON US citizens earning via create program?

Oh crud, sorry about that! I had Royalties in my head but then the thing in that forum post said Copyrights and I couldn't find my W8 form to check haha.

It's so bloody frustrating that they won't just TELL you what the hell they are doing. Is it possible you hit your MASA cap?

Oh, and you should be able to get that 5% back when you file your tax return. But you might need an accountant to help you with that :P

Re: TAX hit for NON US citizens earning via create program?

You only have to supply the W-8 form once, when you verify. Here is info from the official thread about the earn money program: If you are a non-U.S. person IMVU will withhold tax from your payouts at the statutory rate of 30% (based the gross payout amount) UNLESS you claim tax treaty benefits betw...

Re: TAX hit for NON US citizens earning via create program?

Is it possible you didn't fill in your w-8 form in correctly? The UK's tax treaty means that you shouldn't have ANY tax taken out. I'd double check what you sent them and if it is their mistake then don't stop screaming at them till they give you all your money.

Re: IMVU Used Our Products Elsewhere

FYI I had a product from an alt account taken. It shouldn't have happened in the first place but IMVU stepped up to resolve it. I don't really know what more they could do in this situation.
