The IRS recently issued DRAFT versions of the Forms W-8IMY,
W-8ECI, W-8BEN and W-8BEN-E. The DRAFT Forms W-8 incorporate a
number of updates related to the rules under sections 1446(a) and
1446(f), foreign taxpayer identification numbers (FTINs), claim of
tax treaty benefits, and certifications. As the level of complexity
of tax validations grow, so does the need for a complete
understanding of how to mitigate risk and manage compliance.
Transition relief should not lead to inaction.
