I just finished YPS34Free and they need a tax form (W-8ben) from me.
HOW DO I FILL THIS IN? I read the instructions PDF file and it left me more confused than ever.
This is what I have so far
For Part I
1. Full name
3. Ticked 'Individual' and nothing else
4. Full address
9. Ticked 9.a and typed "Canada" in the blank; nothing else is ticked or typed.
10. BLANK! I know I have to write something here, but what???
11. BLANK/not ticked
On "Capacity in which acting", what should I write? "Self"? Why can't they just say relation to signatory or something less obscure?
let me try and help
1 -- name
2 --- Canada
3--- 4 are ok
5 --blank (if adress is same)
6 -- leave it blank
7 --- like 6
9 --- check a write CA
10 -- noothing, leave blank
then sign D and yes in individual is ok (beneficial owner or something)
I must be the only Canadian tax n00b here... can't find a single thread talking about W8 form.
well I had to ask kala too...cause i couldnt figure it out. its much simpler than it looks )
Well, tax forms are usually simpler than they seem but if you make a small mistake, it can cost you. p
I hate CRA/IRS jargon.
