Self employed - Is anyone a subcontractor for a foreign company?

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am considering to become "self employed" and be a subcontractor for a french company (in France).

Is anyone here report self employed income for a foreign company to IRS?

If yes, how so?

I see on IRS that any paiement over 600$ should appear on a 1099 Misc form.

Is that really mandatory for a foreign company or what is important is that you keep your invoices and report all your incomes?


Last significant immigration event:

ROC: Approved : 04/17/2013

USCIS works in mysterious ways...

You should definitely keep track of your income and expenses if you work as a subcontractor for a foreign company. Whether the French company is required to issue you a 1099 depends on whether or not they are treated as conducting business in the U.S.
