Pursuant to new US Federal tax regulations issued under the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act ("FATCA"), in an effort to comply, as of July 1, 2014, we are required to obtain a new tax certificate (2014 version of form W-8) for each non-U.S. payee prior to making a payment.  Without this, it is likely we will be required to withhold up to 30% from the payment and remit that amount to the IRS.  Please be prepared to provide the current version of the appropriate W-8 form as a part of the vendor setup process.  Forms are available at As a reminder, this requirement is due to FATCA passed by Congress in 2010 and signed by the President. Our receipt of the appropriate new tax certificate will help Walmart meet its new IRS tax information reporting obligations.
