Taxes, Tips/Donations, and 1099s; Everything You Need to Know


A Form 1099 is a type of income return used to report earnings annually to the IRS.

You will get a 1099 form in the mail if you received certain types of income during the year. Generally, you will have to report the information from a 1099 on your tax return.

  • The United States IRS issuance threshold is $600, so if you made over $600 you should receive a 1099 if you reside in the US.
  • PayPal issues their own 1099's for all PayPal donations
  • Stripe issues their own 1099's for all credit card donations
  • 1099's must be postmarked by January 31st, so you should receive them before February 15th.
