A W-8BEN form is an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) form that provides foreigners with an exemption from specified U.S. taxes.

The primary purpose of the W-8 form is to indicate to mutual fund companies and brokers that a foreign investor isn't subject to standard taxation practices where investment income is not taxed.
