IRS Form 6166 Apostille

IRS Form 6166 ApostilleDo you need an apostille on an IRS Form 6166?

Are you planning to work or conduct business outside the United States and are trying to avoid double-taxation?  IRS Form 6166 is a letter printed on U.S. Department of Treasury stationary that certifies that a person or company is a United States resident for purposes of income tax laws of the United States.

This form is used to claim income tax treaty benefits and certain other tax benefits in foreign countries.  Form 6166 is also used to claim exemption from a VAT (Value Added Tax) imposed by a foreign country.

If you are planning to teach in a country who has a tax treaty with the United States, you can possibly avoid being taxed twice.  We recommend that you contact the IRS to know if the country has a tax treaty with the United States.

Many business set up representation in foreign countries in order to conduct business in that country.  If the country has a tax treaty with the United States, the individual or company must provide proof to the foreign government in order to qualify for the reduced tax rate.  Form 6166 is also used to claim exemption from a VAT (Value Added Tax) imposed by a foreign country.

Tax treaties may allow residents of foreign countries to be taxed at a reduced rate.  This helps prevent double taxation or a reduction in taxes owed.
