W-8BEN Tax Form

Symptoms

You require an IRS form, from Tracker Software, that grants a foreigner an exemption from certain U.S. information, return reporting and backup withholding regulations.

Cause

Many non-US entities (notably private Canadian companies with no US presence) who sell goods to US customers are often asked by the US Customer to fill out a W-8BEN form to receive full payment.  This has been been replaced by the FW-8BEN form.
