Thread: Reporting Income from Mturk?

  1. #1

    Reporting Income from Mturk?

    I think I saw it somewhere but don't remember quite well. I was wondering if I have to report if I only make $400 since I only started a month ago. I will be filing my W2 as well, Do I have to report this $400 on my tax form or I do not have to report? tia.

    Income is income and you are required to report it. Sorry

    No, you get nothing from Mechanical Turk unless you earn $20,000.

    You could possible get a 1099 from a requestor if you have done frequent work for them

    That ended over 5 years ago with the 1099-K. You will not get a 1099-MISC from a requester no matter how much you have earned from working on their HITS.



    Dear Amazon Mechanical Turk Worker,

    The IRS published new regulations under section 6050W. As a result of this change, Amazon Payments, as the third party payment network provider for Mechanical Turk transactions, is responsible for reporting transactions that meet the IRS thresholds via Form 1099-K, this reporting includes Worker earnings. As a result of this change, Mechanical Turk will no longer provide the Mechanical Turk tax report to Requesters.
