Hi @Nicola Due to the sensitive and personal nature of tax forms, we can't tell you how to complete the form or exactly what to enter. But we can share some general information about this. An instructor who is eligible for a treaty rate and wishes to claim it needs to fill out Part II of the W-8BEN ("Claim of Treaty Benefits"), which includes Line 9 and Line 10. All treaty-claiming instructors must complete Line 9 to specify which country's treaty they're eligible under. However, instructors will only need to complete Line 10 ("Special Rates and Conditions") in less common cases where the type of treaty benefit they're claiming requires them to meet specific conditions beyond the information they've provided on Line 9 (treaty country residency) and Part III (legal certifications). For example, for royalty income, an instructor would need to complete the Line 10 if their country's treaty specifies different withholding rates for different kinds of royalties; they would use Line 10 to specify which of those rates they were claiming. Since many countries' treaties merely require an individual to be a resident of that country and contain a single rate for all types of royalties, it's uncommon for W-8BEN fillers to use this line. If you have any concerns about submitting this accurately, we would encourage you to seek the assistance of a tax professional who has experience dealing with the IRS or US tax code matters.
