I was wondering, i was thinking of hiring a Contractor from odesk.
**Not hiring an Employee. Want to hire Contractors on odesk for small jobs.
Q1. Well, regarding hiring Contractors are we supposed to ask the person we are paying for their details like their EIN, TIN number, social sec num Before we hire them on odesk?
>Like send a w9 or something. What do you guys do when hiring on odesk?
Need some help from someone who has used odesk or is using them for hiring contractors for simple jobs.
Q2. How are you handling all this when hiring a Contractor on odesk for a job so you can report your taxes and so the Contractor can Also have the proper paperwork so they can do their taxes at tax time?
>Q3. Do we just ask for their EIN, TIN, Social sec number *Before* we hire the Contractor on odesk and then at tax time download all the Receipts from odesk and give those to the accountant at tax time? How should we go about all this?
Q4. I thought odesk handled all this for us and all we needed to do was download all our Receipts from odesk and give them to an accountant. What's your experience with this?
>>If we Only plan on hiring *Contractors* on odesk do we have to supply our own Social sec number to odesk so that odesk can send out the 1099 or whatever tax paperwork is necessary for the country the contractor is located in?
Can someone please help me understand how this works on odesk please?
Thanks to all who help
