Can I File a 1099 Form for Payments Made to a Freelance Translator?

Yes, you can file a 1099 form for payments that you make to your freelance translators. Issue a Form 1099-NEC to freelance workers that you pay $600 or more in a tax year for their services. Make sure when you hire a translator that you determine first whether they are an independent contractor or an employee. Determine if someone is a freelance contractor by if they have the flexibility to turn down jobs based on their availability. Freelance translators can work when and where they choose. These contractors use whichever translation software they prefer.
