Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
If you are asked to pay taxed upfront - that sounds as a scam...Be very careful as you might not see the money again.
Several issues...First of all income tax withholding is taken out of proceeds and sent to the IRS. Taxes are NOT paid upfront.
Second - when shares are purchased from you - you will incur a capital gain - and the capital gain is NOT taxed for nonresident alien.
I appreciate if take a moment to rate the answer.
