tax information about republic of georgia




I’m looking for tax information about U.S. and republic of Georgia. I cannot find if there is a specific treaty, all the docs I saw just state: U.S.-U.S.S.R. income tax treaty, which I’ve no idea what it means.



I think it means the Republic of Georgia inherited the US-USSR treaty. If I remember correctly US tax withholding is limited to 10% with this treaty.

Hope it helps.


Yeah, it doesn’t have its own tax treaty, but is bundled in with the ‘Commonwealth of Independent States’.


I see, thank you!


where can I confirm the %?


Here you go…

You want the ‘royalties… copyrights’ column. Looks like 0% from that, so make sure you fill out the W8 with your tax ID.


yeah I saw that while I was googling. but I couldn’t understand what number applied to me, because we are not even in the table, just a footnote:

  • Those countries to which the U.S.-U.S.S.R. income tax treaty still applies: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan.

So where did you read 0%?


okay for the reference I found this site:

Which has clear and concise representation of US treaties with all countries and percentages.

for Georgia royalties are at 0%.


You can be sure, you’re lucky. It will be 0% :slight_smile:


Yes I do feel lucky :slight_smile: Do you any of you know if my current submission of tax information will affect previous sales? I got 1 sale today, and I lost 30% for tax thing, now that I filled out documents correctly will I get back 30% for that sale?


Hey, do you know if updated tax information will have effect on past sales too? Or sales in the future?


In the future, YES.
But for past, no.
What is gone, is gone.
