How do I report my Artist Shops earnings for tax purposes?

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 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. To calculate your total Earnings, go to  Artist Shop orders in your Artist Dashboard and select Download CSV. Open the CSV as a spreadsheet, remove any orders outside the desired timeframe, and calculate your total earnings by summing the Earnings total from each order.
