Hi all,

I'm trying to setup my brokerage account, and when filling the W8-BEN form I see the term “Capacity in which acting” that appears in last part of the form. I've seen this term in other forms as well and in the IRS web site, but I can't find any explanation on what I'm supposed to write there.

I guess you guys here as fellow aliens have filled this form many times. Should I write something in this part or just leave it blank.

Thanks for any suggestions.
