Just completing my first infringement claim via Pixsy (probably the first of a few, if it goes well! As a UK resident, I am completing the W-8BEN form, but it appears (correct me if I'm wrong) that I have to pay the IRS 30% tax (gulp!) on any settlement, unless I submit a Foreign Tax Identifying Number. For UK citizens, is this my Unique Taxpayer Reference (UTR)? Or is it a number issued by the IRS on completion of more arduous forms?! And if I enter my UTR on Pixsy's form, are there more hoops to jump through/forms to fill before I can complete the W-8BEN? Many thanks EDIT: hold up, I think I may have it. Am I correct in thinking that in order to avoid paying the 30% tax to the IRS, I have to fill in the W7 (Application for IRS Individual Taxpayer Identification Number) form, then submit that to the IRS? If so, can I do that online and how long would it take? Thanks again.
