English term or phrase: IRS Form - URGENT
I am almost finished with an IRS form, which I need to return to the client tomorrow morning. Here the title of the form, as well as some terms, that I am stuck with:

"Certificate of Foreign Status of Beneficial Owner for United States Tax Withholding" // Type of beneficial owner // Disregarded entity // Estate // Foreign central bank of issue // U.S. taxpayer identification number // optional // SSN or (T)N // E/N // notional principal contracts // Under penalties of perjury

I am especially confused about the title... "tax withholding" - are we talking about "Quellsteuer" oder "Steuereinbehaltung"? The way I interpret the form, I assume that any kind of tax can be withheld by the government and with this form you apply to get these taxes refunded, if you live outside of the U.S..

Thank you SO MUCH!

Explanation:
A: there is a difference between 'withholding tax' and tax withholding.
Impressive answer about withholding tax was given, but you asked for tax withholding. That term in this context means Steuereinbehaltung/Steuerabzug/ Steuereinzug. So: 'Certificate of...': Bestaetigung des Auslaenderstatus des Beguenstigten des/r Amerikanischen Steuereinzugs/Steuereinbehaltung.
type of beneficial owner: Art des Steuerbeguenstigten.
disregarded entity - context (like: heading this is under): maybe: nicht beachtetes (Rechts-)Subjekt. Entity can mean many things, like: Unternehmen, Einheit,...!
estate: here: Vermoegen, Besitz (auch: Nachlass). again: context...
Foreign bank of issue: Auslaendische Bank fuer die (Steuerrueck-)Zahlungsanweisung
optional: wahlweise
E/N ??context!
the only one I don't know: notional principal contracts

As for the abbreviations: SSN was answered correctly as social security number (Sozialversicherungsnummer), but TN in this context has nothing to do with NAFTA! it is just: Tax(payer)(ID) number: Steuernummer (in the case of business, for instance, or when you are self-employed and you get a separate tax ID number).
'under penalty of pergury': Unter Strafandrohung, oder: Unter Androhung von Strafverfolgung.
