Are you planning to conduct business outside the United States? IRS Form 6166 is a letter printed on U.S. Department of Treasury stationary that certifies that a person or company is a United States resident for purposes of income tax laws of the United States. This form is used to claim income tax treaty benefits and certain other tax benefits in foreign countries. Form 6166 is also used to claim exemption from a VAT (Value Added Tax) imposed by a foreign country.
Many business set up representation in foreign countries in order to conduct business in that country. If the country has a tax treaty with the United States, the individual or company must provide proof to the foreign government in order to qualify for the reduced rate. Form 6166 is also used to claim exemption from a VAT (Value Added Tax) imposed by a foreign country.
Tax treaties may allow residents of foreign countries to be taxed at a reduced rate. This helps prevent double taxation.
