Hello:I was wondering if I could get some help on this one. I'm a US citizen living in Japan. From what I understand, I should not be required to have taxes on dividends taken out, unlike non-citizens. In February, I began investing in DRP's for my wife and me (and my daughter). In four of the cases (three of them handled by equiserve), I had to send requests for W-9 forms to certify that I am a US citizen. I signed the forms, and three of the accounts have been taken care of. The JNJ (Johnson & Johnson) account is not yet. I got the following e-mail message from them today:Dear Mr MeltonThere is a foreign address on each of these accounts. Tax is being witheld in accordance with the tax agreement between the US and Japan (30%). I suggest youcontact a tax advisor if you have any further questions. Thank you.Michael LoganShareholder Relations1-201-324-0498This is not my understanding of the situation. None of the other companies gave me a hard time about this.Any ideas?Jay in Japan
