Hello, I just got accepted as a translator. My question is about taxpayer information paper. Will it count as insurance in my country? I don't know the exact details yet but i need to be "unemployed" to access certain systems in my country, like hospitals and special passport.

thanks in advance.

    Hi brkcndrn,

    Regarding the taxpayer information paper, this is to fulfill Gengo's requirements under U.S. law and does not have any direct relationship with laws in your country.
    Also, as a Gengo translator, you are not classified as an "employee" of Gengo but an "independent contractor" (self-employed, freelance) and are of course required to comply with your country's laws regarding this type of work. I am sorry we cannot provide more help but you would need to contact your local govt / city hall for more information regarding your status as an "independent contractor."

    Hopefully this can clarify it, pay special attention to points 7 & 9.
