Distributor shall deduct or withhold from the Payments any taxes that it is required by Law to deduct or withhold. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Teligent Estonia is entitled under any applicable tax treaty to a reduction of rate of, or the elimination of, applicable withholding tax, it may deliver to Distributor or the appropriate Governmental Authority (with the assistance of Distributor to the extent that this is reasonably required and is expressly requested in writing) the prescribed forms necessary to reduce the applicable rate of withholding or to relieve Distributor of its obligation to withhold tax, and Distributor shall apply the reduced rate of withholding, or dispense with withholding, as the case may be; provided that Distributor has received evidence, in a form reasonably satisfactory to Distributor, of Teligent Estonia’s delivery of all applicable forms (and, if necessary, its receipt of appropriate governmental authorization) at least fifteen (15) days prior to the time that the Payments are due. If, in accordance with the foregoing, Distributor withholds any amount, it shall pay to Teligent Estonia the balance when due, make timely payment to the proper taxing authority of the withheld amount, and send to Teligent Estonia proof of such payment.
