Will I receive a 1099 from Showami?

If you’ve been paid $600 or more over the course of a calendar year, you’re obliged to file a 1099 tax form.

This figure takes into account gross payments—the total amount of payments that have been processed by Showami on your behalf. This includes Showami’s service fees and means that the total gross payments will be higher than the figure you received in your bank account.

Showami calculates the gross amount on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry about whether or not you’re over the threshold.

How to File a 1099

If we find that you’re eligible, Showami will send you a 1099 tax form to the address listed on your account by January 31. An electronic copy of your 1099 will also be emailed by January 31.

If you haven’t been paid $600 or more by Showami over the course of the calendar year, you don’t need to file a 1099. However, this does not relieve you of your obligation to pay taxes on income received through Showami.

If you have any questions about tax reporting, please contact our customer support—we’re happy to help.

Showami is not a tax advisor and cannot provide advice about taxes, income reporting, or unemployment. We recommend consulting with a tax advisor to determine your tax obligations.
