[TAX] Prize from Hackathon/Startup Vikes on F1 Visa

Recommended Posts


I mistakenly filled out the W-9 form instead of the W-8. I received $200 in prize money from an event called Startup Vikes at my university. I recall submitting another W-9 form for a Hackathon event at the university, but I have not yet received the winnings.

What steps should I take to rectify this situation?
