Six Sentence Sunday..


Hello! i'm BACK!!! I know I haven't been around for SSS lately. Working weekends really sucks. Here is my SSS, for this week. It's from my Debut M/M erotic romance novel (hopfully!) coming out in May. Titled "Somtimes It's Fate"

 

“Do you want more?”

“Yes,” David growled.

“Do you want to be fucked,” Jason asked moving the toy enough to cause that delicious burn.

“Yes.”

“Do you want me to fuck you?

“Yes. I need you.”

I'm going to do my best to visit as many SSS as possible! in the meantime enjoy David and Jason and their very sexy adventures!

Quick Guide to the W-8BEN US tax form!


How to fill out a W-8BEN form

—Non-US Citizens, those who do not file a US Tax Return—

W-8BEN form located here: http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/fw8ben.pdf (this link allows you to SAVE the data for later FYI)

Instructions for W-8Ben located here: http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/iw8ben.pdf

This is a guide for individual authors outside of the USA to fill out the W-8BEN form to prevent with-holdings on their royalties only.  Other types of income might be different.

In order to fill out this from you MUST already have a Individual Tax Payer identification Number  (ITIN), details instructions for filling out the form are found on my blog here:  http://angelasstone.livejournal.com/13770.html

I did this to the letter and had my ITIN in about 8 weeks after sending in the forms. It may take as long as 10 weeks during peak tax times.

Once you receive your ITIN fill the form out and mail it back to your PUBLISHER (withholding Agent) immediately, this will prevent them from withholding your royalties! 

Part I

1-      Your full legal name as it appears on your taxes.

2-      The country you live in/pay taxes in (Canada for me)

3-      Type of beneficial owner: Check the box that says “Individual” ONLY

4-      Your physical address/street address NO PO boxes or In care of addresses here!

5-      Your mailing address, if it’s the same as above you do not have to repeat, but may want to anyway.

6-      Your ITIN number from the IRS, select the box “SSN or ITIT” as well

7-      Your foreign tax number (In Canada your SIN number as an example)

8-      Is not applicable unless you require it to identify a specific account, leave it BLANK in-case your publisher needs to add something in here.

Part II

9a- Select this box and write your country in the line provided. Same country as you applied for your ITIN under (so for me Canada)

9b- Select this box as you provided an ITIN

9c- DO NOT select this box

9d- DO NOT select this box

9e- DO NOT select this box

10-

-This is the most complicated part-

According to the instructions:

Persons claiming treaty benefits on royalties if the treaty contains different withholding rates for different types of royalties”So we are required to identify the withhold rate-if any- for the withholding agent.

Let’s break it down, On the form it states:

Special rates and conditions (if applicable—see instructions): The beneficial owner is claiming the provisions of Article ____ of the treaty  identified on line 9a above to claim a ____% rate of withholding on (specify type of income): ____

So the “Article ____ of the treaty “ is the SAME article that you use for your ITIN so for Canada it’s article XII, UK is Article 12, etc. If you are not sure or want to double check here is the list of countries and their treaties:  http://www.irs.gov/businesses/international/article/0,,id=96739,00.html

Next: “to claim a ____% rate of withholding” You need to check out Publication 515, Table 1 Here: http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p515.pdf  

Look under “royalties”                               

We fall under Income Code 12-Other (according to Publication 515: Other royalties (for example, copyright, recording, publishing) (Income Code 12). This category refers to the royalties paid for the use of copyrights on books, periodicals, articles etc., except motion picture and television copyrights.) Same rates as Copyrights/Patients.

You will see a number (0 for Canada and the UK 5 for Australia) that number is the % of rate of withholding.  Fill that number in under ____% rate of withholding.

(specify type of income): ____

Write: “Royalties-12, Other” Meaning that is the rate for withholding is based on Royalties, Income code 12, Other.

Explain the reasons the beneficial owner meets the terms of the treaty article:

This is the reason the Beneficial owner qualifies for the exemption, as we are all claiming treaties based on our residence. You can state something like: Beneficial Owner is a resident of Canada, meeting the terms of the treaty under Article IV (Residence).  Again check your Country’s treaty (link above) to see which article is listed as Residence (Article 4 for the UK)

Part III

11- DO NOT select this box

Part IV

Sign and Date!

Again send registered mail to your publisher(s), sending registered mail is always a good idea esp. When it includes personal tax information.

That’s it! Thankfully this form is a lot more straight forward than the W-7 form! Any question I will do my best to help, or check out: http://www.irs.gov/localcontacts/article/0,,id=101292,00.html at the bottom is a very helpful number you can call (not toll free fyi) for more information!

I will be putting this up on my Blog under “US tax form Guides”  : http://angelasstone.livejournal.com/tag/us%20tax%20forms 

Any questions feel free to let me know

Six Sentence Sunday


Another cute moment from my new Novel "Duty, Honour, Love" Featuring Jaden and Cameron...

“This is security tech calling,” the woman said, “We received an alarm from your residence can you tell me your security phrase?”

Cameron sighed. “Prepare to be assimilated,” he said praying Jaden wouldn’t get the reference.

“Thank you Mr. Olsen, do you require any assistance?” she asked.

“No we’re fine thank you. It was an accidental alarm trigger,” Cameron explained. Jaden had started giggling softly.

;)!

She cried out and arched against him as he slid inside of her, “Ok?” he asked, he petted her hair softly, not moving.

Jaden blushed, “Sore,” She admitted.

Cameron felt a tiny bit guilty, he had forgotten that she still might be sore after the other day, “Am I hurting you?” Jaden shook her head no, her hands ran down his back to squeeze his ass. “It’s taking all of my will power not to fuck you into the mattress right now Jay,” he growled at her.

“Who said I wanted your will power,” She raised her hips up meeting his, “I want you.”

Six Sentence Sunday- Jeporady


I know i've been MIA for the last few weeks, but i'm back! Here is a clip from my new book about a telepathic cop and her partner called "Duty, Honour, Love" i'm about 75% done writing this novel :D!

Here ya go six (ish) sentences :)! 
 *unedited fyi*

“When I look at a computer I see everything, the files the folders the pictures the documents. I automatically index everything into my head. I have an eidetic memory.”

“What’s that?”

Logan rolled his eyes so Chris answered, “better known as a photographic memory.” He explained. “Logan can see and process information at an alarming rate, he also stores it away for future use.”

“He keeps thinking I should go on Jeopardy.” Logan added it.

“Next Ken Jennings,” Chris bantered back.

Six Sentence Sunday...

I'm a bit late putting this togeather, so it's not on the offically post but from my new F/M/M novel with a working title of "Dreammaster"

This is Cameron and Jaden :D!!

Jaden reached down and guided him into her. She let out a small gasp then whimpered as Cameron slid into her. “Alright?” he asked her stopping when he was barely inside, letting her get used to him.

“You’re huge.” Jaden replied.

“Sorry.”

“That wasn’t a complaint.”


Enjoy!!

Hot and Kinky FREE! Fiction +tax fun!

This is a friendly reminder that i'm blogging over at clarelondon  's blog! I'm offering kinky M/M/M fiction!!! feel free to check it out HERE.

Onto tax stuff!

After a month of waiting I finally got an appiontment to go to the US Embassy here in Ottawa to get my passport notorized (thanks to the holidays, everything was delayed a couple of weeks!).

Anyway they have very strict rules for entering the Embassy. No cell phones, no keyless entry fobs, no bags/purses, no liquids that are over 100ml, and all must be in a sealed less than 1L baggy (kidding you'll see why soon!)

Basically brings your papers and your money and that's it! Brilliant!

I arrive at the Embassy at around 1015. I even found parking right across from the embassy in the Market (Impossible to do usually!) for an hour! (my time exprired @ 1115!). Right walk in through the main door and you're faced with two locked doors... uhh ok.

Then a guard says "State you business and country of citizenship!"

I'm like (in a tiny small voice): "I have an appointment at 10:30 and Canadain"
 Through that door there *guard points to door at end of hallway*

I go through the door. Then have to take out all of my $$ that I had brought with me. my keys and my lip balm.  My key for my Toyota has a keyless entry device hooked directly into my key *headdesk* they took my keys and they took my lip balm!!!

So anyway I go through and there is this lady who has the face of an 8 day clock, anyway she goes "Citizenship"
"Canadian!"
"Get in that line there" *points to line for visa's*
Me: "but I have an appiontment! with American consular services" *points to the room labelled for American Consular Services*
Lady: "Get in that line!"
Me: "Ohhh ok :(!"
So I wait 10-15 mins to get to the front of the line to find out..... I AM IN THE WRONG LINE!!!! URGH!
Go back get in line at the right place wait another 5 or so minitues the lady tells me to sit and wait.
and I wait, and I wait....
One thing I found kinda rude was that there was a couple from Zimbawa trying to register their American born son for a passport and the lady was sooo rude. They wrote down the place where they were born but not the country and she was all "Where is that" and when the guy told her it was in Zimbawa she said "I don't know why you people can't write down the country! I don't know small towns like that in weird countries" *sigh*
at 1105 she calles me up. Does a copy sends me over to the cashier, the guy actually skips me to the front og the line. I had american cash so I paid cash went back to the other room waiting like 2 mins then had them bring my papers back a certified copy of my passport for the IRS!! Woohoo!! The waiting took an hour the actually copy getting took less than ten! just in time I rushed out picked up my lipbalm and went back to where I parked my car.

The "special constiable" (aka meter maid) was standing there waiting for my parking ticket to expire, I got there with just seconds to spare!

Ha! so I printed off my W7 formI had to run off to work so i'll be mailing it to the IRS tomorrow. I was going to run downto the US and drop it off at an IRS office but I don't have time right now to do that!
 

Let me know if you have any questions! I'll do another post when I get ready to apply for my W-BEN!
