USA TAX Question: Can I write off foreign freelancers
I live in the United States and have hired several freelancers on Freelancer.com, Odesk, and Elance over the last year, all of which are from over seas. For Tax purposes, I am just getting started and have not created a INC or LLC, but just operating under my name. Can I write the payments to my freelancers off as payroll or something similar? If so, do I need to have them sign any forms? Please let me know and any advise would be great. Thanks.
