Part 1446 (see hyperlink) is a part of a section of the Code that governs withholding on nonresident aliens and overseas companies.

Part 1446 itself offers with withholding on overseas companions who’ve earnings that’s successfully linked with the US via a partnership. Part 1446(f) provides a withholding requirement that applies to the disposition of partnership pursuits, but it surely doesn’t apply if the promoting accomplice offers an acceptable affidavit:

“No particular person shall be required to deduct and withhold any quantity beneath paragraph (1) with respect to any disposition if the transferor furnishes to the transferee an affidavit by the transferor stating, beneath penalty of perjury, the transferor’s United States taxpayer identification quantity and that the transferor just isn’t a overseas particular person.”

I.R.C. § 1446(f)(2)(A).

I doubt that part 1446 applies right here, as my understanding is that ETFs are taxed as registered funding corporations, not as partnerships. However I’m not an accountant or a tax lawyer. My studying on this textual content means that this activates the definition of an ETF which is clearly not a partnership.

Those that are being harassed by varied banks ought to contact their authorized departments and demand their interpretation as to why immediately an ETF is a partnership. I’d like to see what clarification they’ve offered to use this tax. If there’s another code they’re overlapping or how they’re arising with this or are they appearing out of sheer overcaution? If they won’t present an evidence, I counsel you shut the account ASAP or wire out all funds till you discover one other agency.
