I have to fill a W-8BEN form and I live in Italy. I carefully read the instructions but I’m still not sure whether I can send the form or not since “Date of birth” at line 8 is mandatory and I don’t know if I have to fill the field; from what I understand by reading https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/iw8ben.pdf (instructions for W-8BEN, as linked on Gengo website), I need to be “an account holder with respect to a financial account that you hold with a U.S. office of a financial institution (including a U.S. branch of an FFI)”, but I don’t have a bank account. I was planning to receive payment through my PayPal e-mail and then transfer money to my prepaid card. Can you give me further clarifications regarding line 8? What is the purpose of it? Thank you, I hope you can answer my question.
