Department of the Treasury - Internal Revenue Service Instructions for the Person Subject to Withholding Note. A transferee required to withhold under section1446(f)(1) must write “Section 1446(f)(1) withholding” at the top of Copies A and B of Form 8288-A before sending them to the IRS. See section 5 of Notice 2018-29 for more information. Generally, if you are a foreign person that disposes of real property located in the United States as seller or transferor, the buyer or other transferee must withhold 15% of the amount realized. Certain foreign interest holders that are beneficiaries or shareholders are subject to federal income tax withholding at a rate of 21% (35% for distributions made before January 1, 2018). You must file a U.S. tax return (Form 1040NR, 1041, 1065, 1065-B, or 1120-F) to report the sale or other disposition as effectively connected with the conduct of a trade or business in the United States. To receive credit for any federal income tax withheld shown in box 2, attach Form 8288-A to your tax return, unless you make a request for early refund. Foreign partnerships, other than publicly traded partnerships (PTPs), should report the withholding on Form 8804, and attach Form 8288-A. PTPs and their nominees should use Forms 1042 and 1042-S to report the withholding. See Pub. 515 and Pub. 519 for more information. If the amount shown in box 2 is greater than your maximum tax liability, you may apply for an early refund. However, you must still file your tax return when due. To apply for an early refund, you must first get a withholding certificate. No particular form is required for an application for early refund, but it must include the following information in separate paragraphs numbered as shown below: 1. Your name, address, and U.S. taxpayer identification number; 2. The amount required to be withheld as stated in the withholding certificate issued by the IRS; 3. The amount withheld shown in box 2 (attach a copy of this Form 8288-A); and 4. The amount to be refunded. Send your application for a withholding certificate and/or application for early refund to Ogden Service Center, P.O. Box 409101, Ogden, UT 84409. Note. The early refund procedures discussed above are not available for withholding under section 1446(f)(1). See Pub. 515 and Form 8288-B for information about withholding certificates.
