Frequently Asked Questions
1. What are the most common tax forms that must be filed for gig workers?
Generally, the payments made to contractors, freelancers, and gig workers are required to be reported on tax forms 1099-NEC, 1099-MISC, 1099-K, and potentially a few other 1099 forms. This depends on the type and the amount of total transactions made during the tax year.
For example, if the payment made to a contractor exceeds $600, the payer should file Form 1099-NEC with the IRS and furnish the contractor with a copy.
2. The gig worker didn’t provide a W-9. What should be done?
Generally, the payees, i.e., contractors, freelancers, and gig workers, must complete and furnish Form W-9 to the payer. This form comprises information such as TIN, Name, Address, business type, exemption codes for FATCA reporting, and Backup withholding.
If the payee fails to provide TIN by furnishing W-9, the payer can withhold 24% of payments as backup withholding.
