The Section 871(m) in the U.S. Internal Revenue Code (IRC) is designed to prevent non-U.S. citizens from avoiding withholding tax on U.S. equities via derivatives. Withholding tax applies when a cash dividend is paid. The normal tax rate in the US is 30%, but the W8 form reduces the tax rate for you to 15%.
