Was your client subject to backup withholding because no W8-BEN was on the brokerage's file or for other reasons? Just want to check because this is unusual as capital gains of NRA from stock sale are generally not subject to US tax and no FIT/SIT would be withheld. Knowing the context would help address the question you have.
