How to get withholding tax back?

tips-and-tricks

#1

Hi,

I filled in my W8 form and I no longer have tax taken off my sales but does anybody know how I get the tax back that was taken off my first sales before the form was processed?

Thanks

You’ll get a form early in 2017 showing all the tax that has been withheld in 2016. In theory, you should be able to submit that (somehow), so you don’t get taxed twice.

Thanks, I think I’ll plan for not getting it back and then if I manage to jump through all the hoops and get reimbursed, it’ll be a pleasant surprise!
