The form must also be used by dual-resident taxpayers (defined later) to make the treaty-based return position disclosure required by Regulations section 301.7701(b)-7. A separate form is required annually for each treaty-based return position taken by the taxpayer, although a taxpayer may treat payments or income items of the same type received from the same payor as a single item for reporting purposes.Who Must File Generally, a taxpayer who takes a treaty-based return position must disclose that position, unless reporting is specifically waived. See Exceptions from reporting below. A taxpayer takes a treaty-based return position by maintaining that a treaty of the United States overrules or modifies a provision of the Internal Revenue Code and thereby causes (or potentially causes) a reduction of tax on the taxpayer222s tax return. For these purposes, a treaty includes, but is not limited to, an income tax treaty; estate and gift tax treaty; or friendship, commerce, and navigation treaty. Reporting specifically required.

In addition, some waivers do not apply to positions that are specifically required to be reported under these form instructions. See Reporting specifically required by Form 8833 instructions, later.Positions for which reporting is waived include, but are not limited to, the following. See Regulations section 301.6114-1(c) for other waivers from reporting.225That a treaty reduces or modifies thetaxation of income derived by an individual from dependent personal services, pensions, annuities, social security, and other public pensions, as well as income derived by artists, athletes, students, trainees, or teachers;225That a Social Security TotalizationAgreement or Diplomatic or Consular Agreement reduces or modifies the income of a taxpayer;225That a treaty exempts a taxpayer fromt
