Non-U.S. taxpayers should provide Form W-8BEN/W-8BEN-E to Wish in order to be exempt from U.S. tax reporting requirements.
- Non-U.S. domiciled business entity - you can validate your tax identity by providing a completed Form W8-BEN-E.
- Non-U.S. domiciled individual - you can validate your tax identity by providing a completed Form W8-BEN.
