I am developing software program (I live and work outside of US - Europe, I don't have a company), and now have a client from US which wants to license my program (pay me money so he can use it).

He has requested me to fill an W8BEN form. The issue is about US Tax ID number. Currently I don't have one, and if I don't provide it, my client needs to withold 30% of my payment.

I know I can obtain a Tax ID (EIN) by forming Delaware LLC company online (3-5 days). So my question is: if I create the LLC, and put the EIN tax id in the W8 form, what kind of taxes as the LLC do I need to pay, and how? (where do I pay it?)

I know delaware company has 200-250$ flat annual tax. But what about income tax with source from US (from my client), state tax, federal tax? If I operate my LLC company from Europe do I still need to pay these? (in mean the case of my US client)
