    Hey there!
    Since I am not situated in US, I have to fill the W-8 form, but I have some problems.

    I am not sure what they mean by 3rd point which is
    I have to check that?

    After I submit this form what happens exactly? Do they deduct some US taxes from my payment or something?

    I would like somebody who lives outside US and has worked with this to clarify for me, how exactly I should fill out the W-8 form for maximum benefits.

    Thanks!

    There must be one more document where you can refer to all these points. It explains clearly which point to check and which one not.

    It looks like: if you are in Lithuania, then yes check it, otherwise it doesn't apply to you.

    I find that bizarro legal and tax questions are best slept on, and if all else fails contact support and ask for guidance.

    Since you're not from or in the US, you're basically looking to not pay US taxes if at all possible -- the IRS really, truly, does not care unless you are bound to pay them by treaty or because of being in a US territory.

    If you wind up paying US taxes, you can file for a tax identification number and file US taxes next year. Some people wind up getting it all back, it's worth a look.
