Read Frequently Asked Questions

Collecting the tax due from NRAs (nonresident aliens) working in the U.S. is a Tier 1 audit issue. This tax burden is minimized when companies making payments to NRAs for dependent and independent personal services properly withhold on these payments. This training program will review the five forms W-8 including the new W-8BEN-E just released in Q1-2014. It will help attendees establish which W-8 to provide NRAs working for them.
