I'm a Hong Kong Resident and I have an account that is a independent contractor daytrading account (address on account is Hong Kong address too). It is now time to file taxes but I have a question. Do i need to file anything for US Taxes? For ETrade I had to file a W8 BEN form to alert the US govt that I am exempt. However for a remote independent contractor account, do I need to send anything? And if I do need to file a W8 who do I send it too? The IRS says that don't need it, and the company I trade through doesn't take it. Any help would be appreciated!
