How do you 1099 people outside of the United States?
information on taxes and outsourcing

 10:26 pm on Feb 10, 2011 (gmt 0)

If you own a firm and outsource design work or programming to people within the United States, you 1099 them so that they take it upon themselves to pay their own taxes.

So what do you do if you hire a freelance designer or programmer outside of the U.S.? How does the IRS account for the money that you paid them, particularly if you get a 1099/W-2 from the client that is paying you for the project?

there's another form. A W109 or W8 maybe? Something like that. Be careful though, there's like 8 variations of that form. I fill them out sometimes when I sell to US clients.

I would search the forum for this. There was a thread on this very topic with information on the form within the last year.

I have to fill out a W8BEN form for some US based affiliate networks.

You are responsible to pay the IRS 30% when you outsource - period
