W-8BEN guide for Dummies?
So, I ike to read and write but hate mathematics and accounting hence I have procrastinated in completing the tax forms. I just tried reading one of the information sheets and now I feel like my head is about to explode.
I have avoided filling in the forms for so long.
Now I want to push myself to do it.
But the language and ideas are so foreign to me - it
feels like I am reading a foreign language, I am just not
making any head way with the information sheet nor the
application form. I can't make heads or tails of the instructions.
They seem quite complicated. So my question to the great writers on this site.
Is there a W-8BEN guide for Dummies?
What does individual mean? is that a registered owner of a publishing business?
Why won't one of you write a very simple instruction manual for those of us who don't truly get the meta-language for tax forms.
People like me don't want to break laws so is there an easy way to break down the language of taxes for simpletons?
Anyone know how to explain away the W-8BEN form?
I would love to know what other people have experienced with these tax forms.
