Greenie asked the following question via the NPT Forum:
As a foreign affiliate of merchants in the US, what “Tax Withholding Form” do I need to fill? There are so many of these forms I am really confused.
Foreign person, non-resident alien or foreign national performing working outside the U.S must fill out a W-8BEN.
Foreign persons are not subject to U.S. income tax withholding if performing the work outside the U.S.
If you receive certain types of income, including prize money won in affiliate program contests, you must provide a Form W-8BEN to establish that you are not a U.S. person, and claim that you are the beneficial owner of the income for which Form W-8BEN is being provided.
Forms and further information is available at:
