list more than 200 items in a year " Steam Market"
Hello, It's been almost a week, I get this message every time in the Steam market,:

"You have created 168 listings this year. Before you can sell or list more than 200 items in a calendar year, we are required to collect certain information from you. You've provided the necessary information, but it requires verification first. To find out more about this requirement, please visit the FAQ."

I have provided all the information required, I am not a U.S. citizen! I live in Dubai and I did not put any U.S. information, and when I go to my Account details I find another message:


"-Tax Information- You have previously submitted forms to us for U.S. tax purposes. This information has been stored securely and may not be erased."


My question is, what do I do now?
Is there something missing in my information?

Please help me.

@NeKryXe no thay say


"Thank you for contacting Steam Support.

The requested forms were successfully sent to the third party verification company for review.

As soon as the verification company has finished reviewing your documentation, your account will be updated and the limit removed.

This is an automatic process. If this hasn't happened yet, we are still awaiting confirmation on the documentation you provided from the verification company.

Steam Support is unable expedite this process or remove the limitation until your documents have been verified."


and still waiting... to remove the limitation

i'd really like to know if anyone were able to get verified, one year waiting is too extreme. anyway, it would have been great if the countdown were always visible since the first day so we could have been alert and avoid to sell hundreds of cheap items.

It is per a tax year. Doesn't matter if you started in December and sold 200 items. It would reset on January 1st the next year. It isn't one year from your first sale.

After you sell a certain amount of items they are going to make sure taxes get paid on the items to follow US tax laws.

i sold 191 cards and bought 796 until now, and i spent much more than the double of what i earned, so, it looks like i have to receive money from taxes. this this scam is a really stupid one :')

then that's not so bad as i expected. i'm going to try not to keep more than 200 cards to get rid of until the end of the year, then i sell those 200 and leave the market. thanks for the tip ;)

I got something like this, as well; however, I've never sold anything in the Marketplace. No one in our home has, in fact. Still, I have Valve requesting my Social Security information in the Steam Client application, on the Account Details page, just below my email info.

I created threads about the situation that were almost instantly trolled and locked, and was told I wasn't allowed to create threads about account problems in the forums.

Hopefully, you will be treated with more courtesy.

that's a new! ...as far as i know, most forum threads are related to account problems, exactly because the steam support system is awful and slow O_o

Please explain how Valve following the tax laws is a scam? If you feel it is a scam then don't use the market.

This system is very stupid, I use this account for more than three years and I live in Dubai, we have no taxes in Dubai, now more than a month and still waiting to remove the limitation, here's a picture of some messages from Steam support: http://i.imgur.com/Ot1OXmR.gif

Sounds right to me.

Due to the trading cards, a lot more people are coming up onto the 200 item limit around the same time. They probebly have a big backlog to take care of.
