8233 Form (Nonresident Alien Tax)

8233 Form

Non-resident Alien Tax

Employees who are eligible to receive an existing tax treaty benefit must complete Form 8233—Exemption from Withholding on Compensation for Independent and Certain Dependent Personal Services of a Nonresident Alien Individual.

By completing this form, eligible, non-resident international employees may limit their federal and state income tax withholdings. To establish eligibility for treaty status as well as eligibility for employment, the employee must meet with a CU international tax specialist, and present his/her passport and visa documents for review.

For assistance, contact an international tax specialist at 303-860-4200.

Departments are encouraged to advise international employees to make an appointment with an International Tax Specialist via the online appointment scheduling system.
