Excerpt from Attention: New Foreign Tax Withholding Forms:

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) recently announced that it is modifying certain of its tax forms, known generally as Form W-8s, used by foreign individuals and entities (“Foreign Parties”) to claim a reduction or exemption of withholding taxes on payments from U.S. sources (“U.S. Payors”). Payments subject to withholding include interest, rents, dividends and partnership distributions, all of which are extremely relevant to U.S. real estate activities. These new Form W-8s are scheduled to be finalized in December 2012 and available for use starting in 2013. If you are a U.S. Payor making payments to any Foreign Party in connection with your business activities, or if you are a Foreign Party receiving U.S.-sourced income, it is important that you are aware of the revisions to the Form W-8s to avoid any unintended tax withholding liabilities.
