I am not USA citizen and I am not living in USA, I am individual Egyptian. I am little bit confusing about the Tax Form. I asked many people about that but they are not aware and couldn't help me. So I hope you could help me to complete that Form.
I am wondering about which Form option should I select W-8BEN or W-8ECI ?
Hi @MostafaYasinOur tax form tool provides instructors with the ability to select from a variety of different tax forms, including:
W-9 (used by U.S. individuals and entities to certify their Tax ID number)
W-8BEN (used by non-U.S. individuals to certify that they are a beneficial owner or a financial account-holder, and claim treaty benefits)
W-8BEN-E (used by non-U.S. entities to certify they’re a beneficial owner or a financial account-holder, and claim treaty benefits)
We also support the ability to submit certain less-common types of forms through our Support Help Center:
W-8ECI (used by non-U.S. individuals or entities to certify they’re a beneficial owner receiving U.S.-sourced income that is effectively connected with US trade or business)
W-8EXP (used by non-U.S. governments or other tax-exempt entities to certify they’re a beneficial owner or a financial account-holder)
W-8IMY (used by non-U.S. entities to certify they’re an intermediary or flow-through entity receiving payments on behalf of another person)
Choosing the right form will depend on where you live, whether you’re an individual or entity, and other specifics. Since Udemy is unable to provide tax advice, we recommend that you consult with a tax advisor to ensure you’re using the right form and entering the information correctly.
