ATTENTION USA SELLERS: 1099s will be issued by the end of the month if you made over $20,000


Please ignore the incorrect posts in this thread. The last post by me is the correct one. We will be getting 1099s.

I am wondering when our 1099s will arrive? And where we will find them. Thank you in advance.

For anyone in the USA, you should fill out the w-9 form you will see in your settings.

You will be getting a 1099 form soon with your earnings statement from fiverr, according to what we were told last year.

I’m adding this link for anyone who is in the USA and not yet aware we will be getting 1099s this year:


I did a simple search for “1099” for the answer.

You could have done that, too.

Anyway, I’ll save you some work.

You are NOT employed by Fiverr.

If anything, you are an independent contractor.

So, that means the paperwork you request is up to you to put together.

I’ll give you some help with that.

What I do is I have a separate bank account for all my freelance work.

At income tax time I take monthly statements from that account to my tax person.

Just 12 pieces of paper.

All the info is there.



Did you fill out the W-9 form on fiverr? Why did we do that?

We independent contractors in the usa will be getting 1099s this year from fiverr, according to what we were told last year.


I’m in Canada. No W-9 for me.


I filled out a W-9 and thought it was so they could send me a 1099. I have done that for other online companies and they send a 1099, even though I am not an employee.


ok then you have different tax laws.

We fill out the w-9 to prepare to get a 1099.


Do a search for “1099” here on the Forum to read what I did.

Or you can ask Fiverr CS.

You are NOT employed by Fiverr.

I know I’m not employed by fiverr but we are going to get a 1099 this year from fiverr.

Again, you can search the Forum with “1099” as it has been asked before.

Or you can ask Fiverr CS.

I’m asking here, thank you. This was discussed quite a bit last year and we were told to expect to get 1099s.

I like to get my paperwork to my accountant as soon as possible each year so it would be nice to have the 1099 to send her with the rest of it.

From my search that you could have done:

I could add more.

Those do not say when we will be getting our 1099s. Please understand what I am asking. They should be coming along any time now. I just wanted to know when to expect it.

If you know when we will get them let me know please?

That is because you WON’T BE GETTING ONE!!!

You are a freelancer.

Do your own homework.

I’ve led you by the hand enough here.

We will be getting one according to what we were told earlier by fiverr. Being a freelancer does not mean we don’t get 1099s. I get them from another online company I do freelance work for.

Tax laws in usa change every year so you might not be aware of the more recent changes.

We are allowed to ask questions here and this is an important one.

Your posts are misleading in the fact that we were told we were getting 1099s this year and that was the reason we filled out W-9 forms. I hope you understand that this was for people in usa, and meant to be helpful to all of us.


More research I’ve done for you.

This comes directly from Fiverr:

You only need to file income taxes in the United States if you make over a certain amount of money annually. This varies by year, so check for more info.

You’re welcome.

Yes that is true but many of us get 1099s. The amount must be over $400 to have to pay taxes as I recall. I made more than that.

This may be helpful to you:

Perhaps someone from the USA will have something more to add.


Thank you. This was the only thing I saw relating to my question:

Are the 1099s going to start from the date we sign the W-9s, or at the start of 2020?
Forms will be sent in 2021 for the entire 2020 tax year.

I just want to know when we will get the 1099s.

There is a Submit a Request at the bottom of the article if you require further help.

Thank you. I posted this here thinking it would be of help to not just me but to everyone.

I and others now have to wait to file our taxes until we get our 1099s.

So I was wondering if anyone knew of the date or timing of getting them.
