I am a non-resident alien to the United States - have completed the W8 and 1001 forms and returned them to my broker. I was expecting to be exempt from income tax seeing that I am a resident of the U. A. E. where there are not taxes of any kind. I noticed on my account record that my broker is witholding and deducting funds for income tax purposes. I made a quirie about this and it was explained that the U. A. E. have a tax treaty with the U. S. Upon contacting the tax people at the American Embassy here in the U. A. E. they know of no treaty - tax or otherwise.What should I do about these taxes? Are these funds recoverable if I should file a U. S. tax return?
