Hello,

I can help you with your W-8BENE questions. What fields are you unsure on?

Please also confirm this is for your individual self providing the W-8BENE to your US corporation.

it is for my corporation and I'll send along the questions tomorrow morning for you.
Thanks, Richard

Ok sounds good. Have a good night.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Can I send you the file so you can highlight which section/s I need to fill out being a resident citizen of Canada running a US corporation? This may be easier.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Chapter 4 Status (FATCA status) (Must check one certification below for the entity's applicable status). This is the question that I have no idea what to fill out with this.
Expert:  USTaxAdvising replied 1 year ago.

Sorry it took me all day to get back to you. Yes if you want to upload the file that would be great.

Expert:  USTaxAdvising replied 1 year ago.

Just to confirm this is for your individual/personal interest in the US corporation correct? If that is correct you should not be completing Form W-8BENE. You should be completing Form W-8BEN http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/fw8ben.pdf

Form W-8BENE is for Entities, not individuals.

Let me know what if this helps or not and what other questions you may have.
