I have a web-based business and I employ a freelance programmer in Asia. I am in the USA. He works for me at his desk in a foreign country.

My question is how do I handle this tax-wise? Do I just send him a 1099 like would an American contractor? I have never dealt with anything like this before.

Bad Medicine, thank you for your answer.

Now, just out of curiosity, does my foreign consultant have to pay taxes to the IRS on this?
