Hello,

I just got a mail from one of my new American agency, i have an on going contract with them, they have asked me to fill in the W9 form for closing their end of year tax information, however i live in Italy and i am not American but English/italian, therefore i do not have a USA Tax number , does any one know what to do in these cases, i wrote back to the agency explaining my situation, If we are italian and live in Italy must we fill in these complicated american tax forms? any suggestions,

Happy New year to all the Proz Members and Non

This form is useful for their business, but it is W8, (W9 is for American citizens)
I think you should inform that agency that they have to send you the W8 form.

Then, If you need to see the W8 filled by me please send me an email via profile.
I didn't find it complicated.

Happy new year!
