Will I be taxed by the US if I invest as a Non-US Person?

Dividends to be paid to non-US investors will also be subject to a US withholding tax of 30%, although a reduced withholding rate, or an exemption from withholding, may apply if specified in an applicable tax treaty between the investor’s home country and the US. Investors can fill out a Form a W-8BEN (available on the website of the US Internal Revenue Service) form to claim reductions or exemptions based on their country's relevant tax treaties with the US. Different types of Form W-8 apply to different types of investors -- natural persons, businesses, etc.

Our offering circulars discuss typical US tax issues relevant to also provide tax descriptions for US and Non-US investors under the heading, “Certain U.S. Federal Income Tax Considerations.”
