Tip 1: Have a parent at least help you for part of the setup process. That way you can have their insight.
Tip 2: Both KDP and CreateSpace need a social security number for tax purposes in order for you to publish and make money. I recommend using one of your parents SSN, at least until you turn the legal age to publish by yourself. Just in case.
Yes, I know, it’s annoying, but it’s better to be safe than sorry.
Taxes on any proceeds from these online sights will be counted as income for whichever parent uses their SSN.
Note: This is all just advice and I am not legal or tax expert AT ALL! Please do your own research! This is what I did.
Thank you for reading my four part series on self-publishing. If there was anything that I didn’t cover, but you would like to learn, leave a comment and I’ll see what I can do!
