Why do I have to fill out a W-9 ?

All US citizens and resident aliens are required to fill out a W-9 when earning additional income. Your W-9 is used to report your earnings and send the necessary tax  forms  come tax season where eligible.

Threadless Earnings  

If your earnings are from Threadless and you earn over $600 in a calendar year, you will receive a 1099 form with your income earned to file along with your taxes. 

Artist Shop Earnings 

If earnings are from your Artist Shop, eligible Shop owners will receive a  1099-K  .  Eligible means you are in the US and earn $20,000 in merchandise revenue AND 200 orders in a calendar year. 

Threadless + Artist Shop Earnings  

If you receive earnings from both Threadless and your Artist Shop, you’ll receive a 1099 form for your earnings over $600 on Threadless and a 1099-K for eligible Artist Shop earnings as stated above.

Regardless of whether you receive a 1099 or not, it is your responsibility alone to report any income from Threadless and Artist Shops.
