6 February 2014: Changes to Case of the Week
To improve our quality control, we are requiring contributors to get the diagnosis confirmed by another pathologist before submitting the case. Also, we welcome contributors from outside the US, but US Tax Law requires us to withhold 30% of the payment ($15 of $50) to send to the US government, so we will only send you $35. We will also send you some tax forms in February of the next year, but you don't have to do anything with them. It is possible, but apparently unlikely, for you to get a refund of this $15 withholding. Although I am not a tax expert, my understanding is that you will only get this refund if you otherwise work for an American company and file US tax returns.
