Form W-8BEN is VERY old! | Reply
This is major bug that could have cost people money. The W-8BEN form linked on TopCoder* is dated February 2006, while the latest form is dated January 2017. That's more than 10 years difference! Please update to the latest version which can be found here:

I'm working with the correct team to get this form updated, I'll let you know as soon as it's completed.

I see that you have updated the form - great work! However, there are a few issues with it. I can't enter details for sections 9 and 10 because the input boxes have been shifted around. Also some of the boxes (such as the last long one) don't allow me to enter all the details as there is not enough room. Can you please fix these problems, thanks.

I've updated the formatting of the fields. Please give it a try when you get a chance and let us know if any other adjustments are needed.

Thanks,
Tony
