Greg Abbott: Toyota's grand opening in Plano symbolizes the success of the Texas growth engine  

Celebration of a milestone

Juli 2017 | Gov. Greg Abbott


Today we celebrate another milestone marking the incredible momentum of Texas' continuing economic expansion. Toyota Motor North America joins Hulu, Jacobs Engineering, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Kubota, Jamba Juice, Sabre and many other innovative industry leaders who have decided to go big in Texas.

Our greatest natural resource in the Lone Star State is the hardworking people of Texas. And that work ethic draws global leaders like Toyota to Texas every day. With the second-largest workforce in the nation at more than 13 million strong, Texas continues to be a national leader in job creation. In fact, more Texans have jobs today than ever before, even as more people are moving here every year from states that overtax and overregulate.

The W-8BEN-E form 

Belastingen: het kan niet leuker gemaakt worden

Juni 2017 | IRS


The W-8BEN-E form is a common form that needs to be filed by foreign entities who generate income in the US. Foreign entities are subject to U.S. tax at a 30% rate (the foreign-person withholding rate) on income they receive from U.S. sources.

In most cases the clients of your company are asking you to fill out a W-8BEN-E form, since the client is the payer of the withholding income and may rely on a properly completed Form W-8BEN-E to treat a payment associated with the Form W-8BEN-E as a payment to a foreign person who beneficially owns the amounts paid. If applicable, the withholding agent may rely on the Form W-8BEN-E to apply a reduced rate of, or exemption from, withholding. Provide Form W-8BEN-E to your client before income is paid or credited to you.
