If you are asking your customer “Are you a US citizen?” at account opening, you might be asking the wrong question.  A better question is “Are you a US Person?”  These and many other errors set up NRA accounts incorrectly so that you report the interest incorrectly to the IRS.  It begins with the W-8BEN and ends with the 1042 S interest reporting.  If you miss this program you may continue to make common errors that cause you liability and lack of compliance.

Topics include:

  • What is a US Person
  • Is it okay just to use a US TIN
  • Why do we have to get FTINs
  • What if we don’t track W-8BEN expirations
  • What if we don’t get FTINs
  • Who are the countries that we report interest on customers on the 1042S
