Please help me make sense of the w-8ben tax form?
I wonder if some experienced affiliate marketers from Canada or elsewhere outside the USA could please help me? Some affiliate marketing networks, ie: Flexoffers are requiring the W-8BEN form to be filled out.
From what I understand, it's important because if the USA government (IRS), doesn't see this form from people working outside the country...they will withhold some of the commission payment. So as a Canadian, for instance, I would be taxed twice.
Here I have a link to the W-8BEN form, plus a link to the instructions for filling it out:
Please, is there a kind soul that has been through this, who can show me what precisely to fill out?
I'm having a hard time making heads or tails out of this! LOL
Thank you very much,
