According to http://www.irs.gov/instructions/i5713/ch01.html :
"You must file Form 5713 if you are a U.S. person (defined in section 7701(a)(30)) that has operations (defined on page 2) in or related to a boycotting country, or with the government, a company, or a national of a boycotting country.".
In the end of that link, it defines: "The term “operations” means all forms of business or commercial activities and transactions[...] whether or not productive of income [...]"

Does that mean that, if you enter a Qatari news website, you must file that form? And if a non-US citizen calls you to boycott Israel, you should write that you were asked to boycott Israel?

Seems that way too many people should file it...


Gabriel, doing business means buying or selling something. Visiting a website is not a commercial operation.
