Revised tax forms
The IRS has recently issued a revised W8-BEN (rev.2017) Form. We have also updated the Tufts Alien Payment Form (issued 7/27/2017) that now includes a tax analysis option to determine eligibility for treaty benefits. To be in compliance with the IRS, effective immediately, payments made to international payees should use the revised forms. The Alien Payment Form can be found on the TSS forms page. On that same page will be an area to Complete a PaymentWorks invitation for the correct W-8 which you should send to the individual being paid.
Old forms sent to Accounts Payable can no longer be accepted. In the event we receive an old form, we will notify you to have the payee complete the new form(s).
Thank you and we appreciate your cooperation as we assure compliance with the IRS.
