Submitting Your Tax Forms for Review and Approval
The appropriate Form W-8, 8233, or W-9 must be submitted to Shaw Industries' Tax Department for review and approval.
The IRS requires that Shaw Industries maintain the ORIGINAL Form W-8 or 8233 (with an original signature). However, we recommend that foreign vendors first submit the form via fax (706-532-1922) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) so that Shaw's Tax Department can review the form before you submit the original. The IRS has strict guidelines on accepting the forms, and our advance review will allow us to identify errors or omissions before you submit the original form.
If you are an existing vendor, be sure to submit a retroactive statement with your Form W-8 or 8233.
