& Thanks for stopping by.
I will just do a little recap and a little addition of this guide video.
You’ve been looking for some simple instructions & guides as to how to fill up the U.S W-8BEN form, you’ve watch too many videos teaching about W-8BEN, yet you’re still feeling a little bit skeptical.
So, here’s mine…
***Before you begin filling up the form, ask the following questions:
- Is this the correct form for me to use?
- Does my country have an existing tax treaty with U.S? ***If so, am I going to claim certain tax treaty benefits? ***And does the tax treaty benefits I’d like to claim meet the conditions covered by the income tax treaty between United States & Your country of residency (line 9) and of Part 3 of W-8BEN? ***If your answer is Yes, Yes, Yes respectively, then leave line 10 blank; otherwise, complete line 10.
- Are you a student or a researcher claiming an exemption from taxation on your noncompensatory scholarship or fellowship grant income under a tax treaty? If yes, you must complete line 10.
Attn: Student & Researchers: If you need more information about line 10 and other lines; detailed information about the instruction of W-8BEN form, visit IRS website or download rev. 2014 here.
