W-9 form on US bank account (based in US naturally)
Quite surprising to me. In similar behaviour to US bank holders / US tax liable having to complete a W-9 on CH based accounts, I have also received the same form for a US based bank account.
The bank is USAA and I am a green card holder. I called them and they told me that I need to fill out a form as I am a green card holder and insisted that I call the IRS to determine why.
Has anyone had similar experience with it? I'm ok with it for transparency's sake but it Seems strange to me...could it be a trigger that I have a monthly transfer going? --seems a stretch...
