[[Thanks for the advice. But I'm standing on pretty firm ground--I think. My withhold rate is the the
default rate as my country does not have a tax treaty with the USA.

The $60,000 exemption is for non-US persons (neither citizens or legal aliens). US persons get to
exempt $600,000 from their estate taxes.]]

Fine. If you knew the answer, I'm not sure why you asked the question...or what your question actually was.

As I recall, you were asking about income taxes...not estate taxes. They are completely different.

In addition, all I really gave you were references from my tax liabrary and the IRS Publications. As I stated up front, I'm not an expert (or even a novice) in international taxation issues.

So if you are comfortable with your situation as it currently stands, that's great.
