When do I need to complete Form W-8?
If you are a United States citizen or alien required to file a Form W-8: Form W-8 should be completed by the employer by any time that the Form W-8 is due. For example, the Form W-8 should not be completed until the employer receives payment for the noncitizen's wages; unless the Form W-8 has been sent by the employer to an employer or its authorized agent on the time and in the manner prescribed by the IRS; or until the Form W-8 is accepted, rejected or returned to the employer for processing, whichever happens first. If the Form W-8 includes any documentation, it should be given to the employer or its authorized agent no later than the date it is delivered. For example, the employer should accept Form W-8 after the employer or its authorized agent delivers it. The Form W-8 should be submitted as soon as possible after an employer is furnished with a copy of the Form 1095-C. At this time, the Form 1095-C is generally viewed in the same manner as a Form W-8. The employer should accept, for further processing, the Form W-8 only because its processing is complete. In addition, if the Form W-8 is received later than the time of filing, it would not be considered to be in compliance because the employer failed to file Form W-8 even if the Form 1095-C filed with it was properly received. If the employer does not file the Form W-8 by the deadline, no wages may be paid or withheld from the pay of nonsupported FICA tax. The failure to have any Forms W-8 received can result in a noncompliance with the tax code. How many Forms I need? The IRS has published information that states that the IRS has determined “that employers are required to file, and will be required to file, the Forms 1094-C and 1095-C, Employer's U.S. Tax Return for Individuals.” A list of Forms available for review, and instructions for preparing a Form W-8 can be found here.
