Question by Ricardo Ricci: Are payments deposited in the US bank account of a NRA freelance translator subject to tax withholding?
I am a non-resident alien freelance translator residing in Italy. Do the US translation agencies that render my work have to keep back taxes on my earnings when they deposit my earnings on my US Bank account? I am not the spouse on an US citizen. I have no children born in the US.

If you are providing the translation within the US or its territories than yes they do. If you are rendering the service outside the US than no they don’t. Besides you are a freelance translator and not an existent employee of the agencies so they are not accountable for rolling up any of the taxes if you do be any
