Why are Canadians excluded from earnings on Yahoo Contributor?

I can publish my writings with the Yahoo Contributor, but only U.S. residents will be paid for their work. Why are Canadians excluded?


HubPages Earnings Program pays writers from outside the U.S. when non U.S. individuals complete the Internal Revenue Service Form 8233 (in order to claim a tax treaty exemption from withholding). This is another example where Canadians are left out of the loop!

    Because of complicated tax laws. "If you are not a citizen or legal resident of the U.S., you are not eligible for payment due to U.S. tax regulations."
