I want to hire 30 min consulting services for the following questions:
I'm a non US citizen and I have a US bank account and the income from the following sources:
- Airbnb from an apartment outside US
- Freelance work from websites (elance)
- Income from a HongKong company I own
The account was legally opened from a subsidiary outside USA.
Question #1 do I have to pay income tax in the US?
Question #2 what is W-8BEN? Do I need it?
Please provide links (US Gov preferred) to each answer so I can study further after the consulting time.
