Hi Gambiteer

you should read IRS publication 515,

http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p515.pdf

it describes what you have to pay in the US as a non resident alien, it also have a list of tax treaties in the back.

you should also fill in a W8-BEN form and send it to your broker (normally they will ask you to fill it in when you open an account)

instructions for W8-BEN

The form itself

Cheers
Erik
