    W8- BEN form for contract job in US

    I am an Indian staying in US with an L2 Visa from 19th March 2012 and will be in US for 5 more months. I received a contract job offer to work at home. The company has e-mailed me a W8-BEN form to fill up.

    I went through IRS instructions and reached at possible answers for some questions as given below.

    Permanent address: Indian address as shown in Passport?
    Mailing address: US address?
    SSN: I have an SSN, can fill in that

    Section 9a:The beneficial owner is a resident of ( INDIA/ USA) with n the meaning of income tax treaty... which s the correct one ?INDIA or USA?

    Section 11: should I tick this box?

    Thanks for helping .
