W-9 or W-8 for DHS Authorization to Work

Answered by: 

Question: 
We have customers from Mexico that have been lawfully admitted to the US on a temporary basis who have DHS authorization to work. The Social Security Administration has issued them a SS card that states;Valid for work only with DHS authorization. Do they sign a w-9 or W-8 for their loan?
Answer: 

Unless these individuals are U.S. Citizens or resident aliens, they provide you a W-8BEN. Their temporary permission clinches the answer. They don't qualify for a W-9.
