[Note: this issue was addressed directly w/ the client earlier this week, but I am posting a response here for the benefit of other users]
For non-US clients, we need to withhold and pay taxes to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) here in the US on a monthly basis. The US has tax treaties with some countries that allow you to have this tax reduced or even eliminated. Whether or not there is a tax treaty with your country and the US, we need to have a W-8BEN on file in order to pay international clients.
