ATTACHMENT TO FORM 8233- NONRESIDENT TEACHERS AND RESEARCHERS
.06 JAMAICA





I was a resident of Jamaica 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 or conducting research for a period not expected to exceed two years at Michigan State University, which is a recognized educational institution. I will receive compensation for my teaching or research activities.

The teaching 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 Jamaica. I have not previously claimed an income tax exemption under that treaty for income received as a teacher, researcher, or student before the date of my arrival in the United States.

I (insert the date of your last arrival in the United States before beginning the teaching or research services for which exemption is claimed). The treaty exemption is available only for compensation paid during a period of two years beginning on that date.
