Hi!

I have a question on taxes. I am self-employed and I usually work with translators from Argentina. I need to know if I should send them any form when I make a payment in order to deduct it as business expense. I was told that I only need an invoice from the translator in case IRS audits me. Are invoices sent by email acceptable?

Thanks for your help!!

I rarely outsource, but Apr 26, 2005

when I have, I have kept the (mailed) invoice and my payment confirmation from the bank. The accountant has never questioned this or asked for additional supporting information. I am also located in the US and pay US taxes.
