If you have any questions related to Payable, visit their resources at the Payable Help Center.
Do I qualify for a 1099-K?
Your state determines your qualification for a 1099-K. Generally, if you meet both of the following criteria, the IRS requires any payment processor (such as GlossGenius) to report this:
- More than $20,000 in gross sales from goods or services in the calendar year
- AND more than 200 transactions in the calendar year
.However, if your tax reporting information is associated with Massachusetts or Vermont, we are required to issue a Form 1099-K and report to your state when you process $600 or more in credit card payments.
These reporting thresholds are based on the aggregate gross sales volume processed on all accounts using the same Tax Identification Number (TIN). If you have multiple accounts that use the same TIN, we will aggregate the volume for all accounts to see if you qualify for a Form 1099-K.
For every account that meets the 1099-K requirements, the IRS requires GlossGenius report this information.
Where can I locate my 1099-K?
If you qualify, you will receive an email from Payable.com at the end of January. Please join Payable and follow the instructions to confirm all of your information is correct and how you would like to receive your 1099-K. It is important to ensure that your information here is correct since this will be filed and sent to the IRS.
How do I submit my 1099-K form?
If you qualify for a 1099-K, GlossGenius is required by law to file a copy of your 1099-K form presented on Payable for your tax year. You should seek the advice of a tax professional with regards to questions about how to file your taxes, GlossGenius cannot provide tax advice.
What charges qualify for a 1099-K? Are cash payments tracked?
