Complete 1040x form Notification of Alien Status You must let your employer know whether you are a resident or a nonresident alien so your employer can withhold the correct amount of tax from your wages. Complete 1040x form If you are a resident alien under the rules discussed in chapter 1, you must file Form W-9 or a similar statement with your employer. Complete 1040x form If you are a nonresident alien under those rules, you must furnish to your employer Form 8233 or Form W-8BEN, establishing that you are a foreign person, or Form W-4, establishing that your compensation is subject to graduated withholding at the same rates as resident aliens or U. Complete 1040x form S. Complete 1040x form citizens. Complete 1040x form If you are a resident alien and you receive income other than wages (such as dividends and royalties) from sources within the United States, file Form W-9 or similar statement with the withholding agent (generally, the payer of the income) so the agent will not withhold tax on the income at the 30% (or lower treaty) rate. Complete 1040x form If you receive this type of income as a nonresident alien, file Form W-8BEN with the withholding agent so that the agent will withhold tax at the 30% (or lower treaty) rate. Complete 1040x form However, if the income is effectively connected with a U. Complete 1040x form S. Complete 1040x form trade or business, file Form W-8ECI instead.

Complete 1040x form These are services you are required to perform as an employee and as a condition of receiving the scholarship or fellowship (or tuition reduction). Complete 1040x form Nonresident aliens should fill out Form W-4 using the following instructions instead of the instructions on the Form W-4.
