Tax forms - 1099 2 pages: [1] 2
Posted: Thursday, February 01, 2018 4:40:57 AM
This is probably not the correct place to ask this, but did Zazzle mail out 1099 tax forms this year? I know there was some confusion last year and we were told to just print our Paypal earnings, then they were sent out anyway. Zazzle, if this should be in another forum, please move it there. Thanks.

Bebops last year there was a thread about this subject. Using the "search" brings it up. However, I can't post the link here because it goes to the ProDesigner forum which many folks can't access and is against the rules.

Hopefully an mod will post information here on this thread.

In the meantime head to the ProDesigner forum.

Thanks LM, that was "sort of helpful". But we need to know if this year will be the same. I too hope a mod will post clear tax info here or better yet on the Zazzle News Forum.

These forms are being send with the postmark of Jan 31st on them over the coming days. All designers who have received $600+ in earnings from Zazzle will receive one. Grin

Our mailbox is about a half mile away, so maybe my husband will pick up the mail. It's too cold out for me. Grin

I got mine today, well not really. It was delivered to an address I have not lived at for two years. Luckily my son lives there now. I checked my address that is listed with Zazzle and it is my present address, not my old address. Don't know how that happened.

Are you referring to the 1099-MISC form? I got my 1099-MISC today, but it was for less than the $600.

A business doesn't have to itemize pay outs of six hundred dollars or less to an individual, they can be reported as Misc business expenses. That doesn't explain why we get a 1099 for totals less than $600. But I got one last year, the first I have gotten from Zazzle and I made way less than six hundred dollars.

I just got mine, but Zazzle seems to have forgotten my first name. It's addressed to just my last name. Not even a first initial.

Mine was addressed without my first name or initial.

Same here. One day a week I work for a small business and I do their payroll, billing, 1099-Misc, etc. The IRS requires a very specific format for the 1099-Misc form and I can't imagine why they would choose not to include a full name. Very strange. Well, if the IRS doesn't like it, I'm sure Zazzle will be notified. As for us, we shouldn't have any problems, we're only responsible for reporting the income, we have no control over how Zazzle fills out the forms.

Mine also showed just my last name, so it appears it's all dependent on the last four digits of our S.S. numbers, which means that, if both my husband and son also designed for Zazzle, we'd still be seen as separate entities regardless of living at the same address. I'm not sure I've ever seen the lack of a full Social on a financial document destined for the government. Is it common these days?

Not that I've seen. Maybe a large company like Zazzle that has to file electronically doesn't have to put in full names and social security numbers, though I can't imagine why it would be different. When filing on paper for a small business you have to send the IRS copies of every 1099-Misc along with a 1096 form, which is basically a summary form. All of the 1099-Misc forms I sent had full social security numbers, full names and/or business names.

I also received my 1099 for less than $600. I am actually glad to see it because it makes me feel better handing that over to my accountant rather than a piece of scratch paper with a figure written on it. As this is my first “POD tax season”, I had been trying to read up on the right tax protocol for this type of thing. A 1099 for every penny makes it much more cut and dry.

What if you’ve made less than $600? Does Zazzle automatically send it out or do you have to request it?
I’m very new to this.
Posted: Monday, February 05, 2018 2:52:08 PM
Out of ten years I've only made $1150-ish total. I'm now getting a tax form?

Many of you have received 1099s without a first name. We just found out that happened through the vendor we use and you will be receiving a new 1099 with your complete name. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Good to know. Thanks for the update!

Perhaps someone can clarify something for me. I had been under the impression that the threshold for reporting earnings was $600. Is that wrong? and if so, what is the correct $ threshold for reporting?

Unfortunately, we are unable to advise you on how to report Zazzle earnings on your taxes. Please consult a tax professional; thank you! Smile

I made far less than $600 as well, and I also got a 1099. That's because the threshold for regular income is $600, but for royalties, it's only $10. And since we can't cash out at only $10, I guess everyone who received a payment from Zazzle, will get a 1099.
My problem is about the amount in Box 7. It's easy enough to report royalties, but now that extra $25 in the wrong box is going to mess everything up. It's supposed to be for non-employee compensation over $600, and obviously $25 is nowhere near $600, so they shouldn't have put that in there. I assume it's for referrals, maybe?
Posted: Monday, February 12, 2018 11:49:14 AM
I just called the support line asking just this question- What is the $25 for? because my Turbo Tax form is asking me. I was told they don't know and have no one I can contact to get that info. Very frustrated considering I only made like $400 off Zazzle this year.

Hi Connie and Hillary - Box 7 on your 1099 form is for referrals. Our Finance team has been advised of your discrepancies and a corrected 1099 form will be sent to the both of you. Apologies again regarding any inconvenience Love
