So I've started to look into the possibly of making revenue from my website by using ads. I'm a US citizen and I think I may be required to give some of these websites my SSN before they can pay me anything. So my question is, have any of you experienced problems or had reason to feel uncomfortable giving your SSN to any of these companies? Are there companies that you've had a good experience with and feel comfortable with? Is it complicated to file income tax and get the documentation for this source of income? Any first hand experience would be greatly appreciated. The fear of mismanagement of my information (or identity theft) or creating tax problems has kept me from making any money off my site.
