U.S. Tax Information for Foreign Vendors – Submitting Your Tax Forms for Review and Approval
The appropriate Form W-8, 8233, or W-9 must be submitted to MidAmerican Energy Company's Tax Department for review
and approval. The IRS requires that MidAmerican Energy maintain the ORIGINAL Form W-8 or 8233, with an original
signature. However, we recommend that foreign vendors first submit the form via fax at 515-281-2289 or
email at ForeignVendor@midamerican.com
so that MidAmerican Energy'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.
