    Ok, I just signed up with CJ and they sent an email asking me to sign this tax form.

    I'm from Canada and I would like some help filling this form out.

    First of all, do I fill in line 6 where it asks for your US taxpayer ID number? I'm assuming no, since I'm canadian...

    For Part II and Part III, what do I check??

    Also, at the very bottom of the form where you sign your signature and date, it also has another blank to fill called "Capacity in which acting"

    What the heck is Capacity in which acting?? What do I put there??

    Any help would be great.

    I submitted to CJ with name + address, blank line 6 and part II 9(a) for tax treaty (I assume Canada has a US treaty too).
    CJ accepted it... although, I think you should put something in line 6 (one of my other programs insists on something).
    As a "non resident alien individual claiming tax treaty benefits" you can apply for an ITIN from the IRS using form W-7 (check for form and info). SSN and EIN n/a for foreigners, ITIN is available for foreigners for tax recording.
    Check for instructions on W-8BEN, and if you are really stuck you can submit a question to the irs online, they've replied to my q's within a few days in the past... but most info is available on their site, use the search boxes on the left side.

    I sent my form a while back and left that capacity part blank
    Nothing back from CJ on any problems with it.
