TAX INFORMATION FOR
FOREIGN AUTHORS

Non-US citizens or those who do not file a US Tax Return must have a current W-8BEN (Certificate of Foreign Status of Beneficial Owner for United States Tax Withholding) on file with the publisher for  current tax year. Here is a link to the form:

W-8BEN form and instructions can be found here..

All authors who are not residents or citizens of the US, or who do not file a US Tax Return must complete a new W-8BEN with current information and send it to:

Rogue Phoenix Press

7442 Lofty Loop SE

Salem, OR 97317

The W-8BEN must contain either a US Social Security Number (SSN), an Employer Identification Number (EIN) in the case of the author who is acting as a company, or an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN).

If you do not have an SSN or EIN, then you must apply for an ITIN. Use the IRS form W-7 to obtain an ITIN from the US IRS. You must receive the ITIN prior to sending in the W-BEN form. MAIL THE W-7 FORM TO THE IRS.

Here is a link:

W-7 form and obstructions can be found here.

Send the W-8BEN to the address above

The W-BEN is used to claim an exemption from US withholding on your royalties and payments from Rogue Phoenix Press. Failure to have a W-8BEN on file will result in a 30% withholding on all royalties and payments. That amount will be forwarded to the US IRS.
