What do you mean by Country of Legal Residence/Formation?

  • For individuals: this is the country where taxes are paid or the main place of business, employment, post of duty (e.g., the residence of an army or diplomat personnel stationed outside of the US), regardless of the family home. It is the place where you work or attend school on a long term basis, permanently or indefinitely.
  • For an entity: the tax home is the place where the entity was formed.
