This form is required by your employer to show that you are living in a country which has tax agreement with the US so you pay your tax in your country instead of in the USA.

The instructions are on the back of the form or immediately beside the fields required. But it's definitely difficult to give a detailed step by step instruction.

谢谢JianJun! Mar 30, 2007

谢谢你的快速回复!

客户只发了一张表格给我,上面没有任何Instruction,不过我上到http://www.irs.gov/formspubs/lists/0,,id=97817,00.html (Listed here for later comers' reference)去下载了一份填表说明,回头研究一下应该没问题了。

但是,扫了一眼所下载的说明,洋洋万余言,当下实在没有时间看啊!能否冒昧请求各位之前已有填妥之表格扫描件的同仁,将私人信息涂掉之后通过电邮发给我?这是最好的快速指南了,大家都是在中国的译者,情况应该差不多吧。先行万分感谢!我的电邮:never8give8up#hotmail.com (Please replace # with @)

只需填写你在中国的住址等 Mar 30, 2007

个人相关信息,跟美国之类的东西一概划掉。最后签名即可。公司让你填这个表格后,就不会扣你的税了。

Zhoudan: 意思是说我只需填写“part I”,其余的不管,对吗?

请问 Forrest Liang: Mar 30, 2007

你这份表格不需要盖公章吗?

我也曾在本坛求助有关开具 Certificate of Tax Residency 的问题,那个可是要盖公章的:

觉得性质是一样的,都是为了避免双重征税。
