A new, US-based direct client just sent me form W-8ECI and asked me to fill it in. The complete title of the form is: "Certificate of Foreign Person’s Claim for Exemption From Withholding on Income Effectively Connected With the Conduct of a Trade or Business in the United States". Can anybody let me know if as a freelance translator living outside the US, I am really required to fill in this form? Thanks a lot in advance!
