    Hello BHW

    I recently started working with CPA Companies and now i ask myself if the IRS will submit any informations about earnings or something else to European finance authorities?

    Anyone got experience or knowledge regarding to this question?

    Thank you in advance.

    Regards

    Donnie

    i think there's no such cooperation between the agencies, so i highly doubt that
    whenever i fill out a W-8 BEN i never put my tax id (it's not necessary as per instructions), if you aren't a US citizen, it has no use for the IRS anyway

    you can also write fake data on the form, nobody will check it, insert a fake DOB or street address or both and even if the IRS submits your info to your domestic tax agency - highly unlikely - your domestic tax agency won't be able to identify you

    You don't send the form:
    - CPA company can be in trouble
    - you don't care

    You send the form with fake info:
    - the company is within the law
    - you are not, but unlikely to get caught
    - the cpa company dont give a shit

    You send the form with legit info:
    - everyone is happy
    - please pay your taxes
