All U.S. members receiving payments directly to their bank account must provide their W-9 tax information. This enables us to issue the appropriate tax forms when necessary.

⚠️ Tax Year 2023 Update (as of November 21, 2023): The IRS has postponed the $600 reporting threshold. For 2023, will adhere to the previous threshold of $20,000 and more than 200 transactions. Most members are unlikely to receive a Form 1099-K from us in early 2024.

Why? The IRS mandates platforms like to collect a Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) from each account holder, which we gather via a digital Form W-9. At year's end, we report to the IRS using Form 1099-K for users exceeding a certain earnings threshold.

Without your W-9, we cannot generate a Form 1099-K for you or the IRS. You'll be prompted for this information before receiving a booking payment. To avoid delays, add your tax info now!

Legal Notice Regarding Venue Bookings It's important to note that venues where artists perform may also require similar tax information, as these venues are considered the payers for the artist's services. Compliance with these requirements is crucial for both the artist and the venue to adhere to IRS regulations.
