Whatnot Sellers based in the US may receive an IRS Form 1099-K when certain sales and transaction thresholds through third-party settlement organizations are met. If you received payouts from multiple authorized third-party settlement organizations, you may receive multiple Form 1099-K if your transactions meet the IRS reporting thresholds. If you are not a US person (as defined by the Internal Revenue Service) or do not meet the requirements below, you may not receive a form 1099-K.
IRS regulations require third-party settlement organizations (Stripe, PayPal, or Dwolla at Whatnot) to issue Form 1099-K to Sellers who have earned more than $600 in a calendar year. Additionally, some states have lower thresholds that may trigger a 1099-K being issued.
Note: Not all states have finalized their 1099-K requirements for the tax year 2023.
