    I get asked these a lot so here you go!

    Foreign tax identifying number, if any (optional)

    If you don't know what it is, you don't have one and can leave it blank.

    Special rates and conditions (if applicable—see instructions)The beneficial owner is claiming the provisions of Article.......... of the treaty identified on line 9a above to claim a............. % rate of withholding on (specify type of income):.............................
    Explain the reasons the beneficial owner meets the terms of the treaty article:...................................................


    99.5% of the time this is blank in my experience. You may want to read further in the instructions though to be sure.

    For what exactly is this tax form?

    It is for our IRS. We have to prove as American businesses that we are paying real people. In order to pay you, we have to have these on file.

    Hope that helps!
