    Foreign Freelance Workers - Tax Implications?

    SFO415 Newbie

      Hello.  I am starting an online translation services using foreign freelance workers located outside the U.S.  I have been reading various IRS publications and I am confused.  Assuming that a foreigner working in Europe gets paid more than $600 in a year from me, do I have to issue a 1099?  Do I have to withhold taxes on what I pay that person?  If so, how much?  What else do I need to do?  Since I am just starting out and money is tight, I can't afford a tax advisor now.  Thanks.
