W8-BEN form - Australia - correct Paragraph and wording
Posted: Thursday, June 21, 2018 3:46:57 PM

I have tried to submit the W8-BEN a few times and they keep telling me that I have some details wrong:

Part 1 (6) - My country's tax number
Part 1 (7) - (was told to keep this blank and not put the zazzle contributor ID in?)

Part 2(10)- Article 12
- Paragraph ?,
- ? % tax rate?,
- income type: Royalties
- Explanation: "Beneficial owner is a resident of Australia
and Royalties are from sources in the United States. As per
double tax agreement between australia and United states,
the withholding tax rate on royalties is ?%"

Can any one help with this? any aussies there?

Warm regards,

The Rubber Kitty

I'm sorry this is so late, but I did this a while ago, and the only reason it worked for me was because I joined the International Zazzlers Facebook group. Over there (at least back when I did it) they gave you word-for-word what to say on the form for people in many different countries. I literally copied the recommendations word for word.

I'm in Australia, and by using their recommendations, my form was immediately accepted.
