.07 PEOPLES REPUBLIC OF CHINA




I was a resident of the Peoples Republic of China on the date of my arrival in the United States. I am not a United States citizen. I have not been lawfully accorded the privilege of residing permanently in the United States as an immigrant.

I am visiting the United States for the purpose of teaching, giving lectures or conducting research at Michigan State University, which is an accredited educational institution or scientific research institution. I will receive compensation for my teaching, lecturing, or research activities.

The teaching, lecturing, or research compensation received during the entire tax year (or during the period ) qualifies for exemption from withholding of federal tax under the tax treaty between the United States and the People’s Republic of China. I have not previously claimed an income tax exemption under that treaty for income received as a teacher, lecturer, researcher, or student before the date of my arrival in the United States.

Any research I perform will be undertaken in the public interest and not primarily for the private benefit of a specific person or persons.

I [insert the date of your last arrival in the United States before beginning your teaching, lecturing or research activities]. The treaty exemption is available only for the compensation received during the maximum aggregate period of three years.
