    Merry Christmas to all fellow BHW members..

    i signed up with Azoogle today and i was told to file the W8-BEN before i could start so here are a couple of things that i'm confused about HELP will be much appreciated.

    W8-BEN IRS form link for convenience.
    Code:
    http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/fw8ben.pdf
    
    
    1. W8-BEN Part 1, Line 6
    i can't file a SSN as i'm not in the US so do i have to file an ITIN with IRS before i file a W8-BEN with them?

    2. W8-BEN Part 2, Line 9
    As i'm a foreign individual i only have to check the check box 9a and 9b if i have a ITIN number. am i right???

    W8-BEN Part 3, Line 11
    i just don't understand what is being asked here please explain should i check this box???

    W8-BEN Part 4,
    the very last field of the W8-BEN asks me "capacity in which acting" should i write beneficial owner here??


    Guys i know today was not the right day but like always you guys have been there for me.

    thank you in advance
    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
    :D
