Dear colleagues: The agency I run as PM has generally avoided using translators outside of Spain due to the fiscal complications involved. We require a "CERTIFICADO DE RESIDENCIA FISCAL" from all translators from outside Spain. There are translators I would like to work with in the U.S., for example, but they don´t even know what the UNITED STATES equivalent of this form would be. Can anyone advise? Thank you very much. - Justin Peterson, Madrid, Spain

PD: Also, is there a standard "Certificado de Residencia Fiscal" form which translators in EUROPE should be able to produce?

Form 6166 Oct 10, 2012

The IRS provides a residency certification on Form 6166: Certification of U.S. Tax Residency.

Form 6166 is a letter printed on U.S. Department of Treasury stationery certifying that the individuals or entities listed are residents of the United States for purposes of the income tax laws of the United States. This form may also be used to claim income tax treaty benefits and certain other tax benefits in foreign countries.

Explain? Oct 10, 2012

I am in the United States, but don't speak Spanish. What type of information are you looking for exactly in this form? Residence for tax purposes?

Maybe you are looking for a W-9?

I (U.S.-based) have to have W-8BEN's on file for non-U.S. persons to whom I outsource work so that I don't have to withhold tax from payments.

Have you consulted your company's accountant?
