Do you need to apostille your US Tax Residency Certificate (IRS Form 6166)?
If you are a US citizen living abroad or a US business operating in another country, that country would require proof of your residency in the US for you to claim certain income tax treaty benefits. An apostilled US Tax Residency Certificate (Form 6166, also referred to as US Residency Certification) is accepted as a valid proof of residency by all country members of the Hague Apostille Convention. US Tax Residency Certificate (IRS Form 6166) is a digitally generated letter printed on U.S. Department of Treasury stationery that certifies that an individual or a business entity listed on it maintains residency in the United States and, therefore, are eligible to claim income tax treaty benefits and certain tax write-offs in a foreign country.
