I am a resident of Canada, which has a tax treaty with the U.S. I am currently submitting form W-8BEN to be exempted from withholding tax on Adobe stock earnings. I have indicated that I'm a resident of Canada on Line 9, but I'm not sure how to fill out line 10. Should I say I'm claiming the provisions of Article XII of the treaty identified on line 9 to claim a 30% rate of withholding on royalty income from the sale of photography stock? And what reasons do I give on the line that follows?
I'm sorry but we are not able to provide tax form assistance of advice through the forum. My recommendation is to contact a local tax advisor for help.
