I have contacted with an agency from the United States, and they ask me to fill a W-9 form. I have previously filled (for other companies) W-8 forms, which are for people from outside the USA, but working with companies based in the USA. So, what is the W-9 form for? Do I have to get a TIN (Taxpayer Identification Number)? I am a little bit annoyed, as this is strange for me, so, any help will be welcomed.

| The instructions on the 2005 form do seem to say || Apr 22, 2005 |
that a W9 isn't intended for 'non-resident aliens'
"Purpose of Form
U.S. person. Use Form W-9 only if you are a U.S. person
(including a resident alien), to provide your correct TIN to the
person requesting it (the requester) and, when applicable, to: .....
Foreign person. If you are a foreign person, do not use
Form W-9. Instead, use the appropriate Form W-8 (see
Publication 515, Withholding of Tax on Nonresident Aliens
and Foreign Entities).
Nonresident alien who becomes a resident alien...."

Yes, I have just received an e-mail from the company telling me that it was a mistake (he did not notice that I am Spanish). I have previously told him that companies from the USA usually asked me for the W-8, but at the end everything is ok.
Thanks a lot for yor attention.
