By far the easiest way to get around US withholding tax is to buy Irish domiciled ETFs. The US has various income tax treaties with countries in order to avoid double taxation of the same income and to prevent tax evasion. In particular, there is a US-Ireland tax treaty that reduces withholding tax from the standard 30% to 15%.
