Form 1099-K

Manage your tax filing information in Zonos Dashboard.

Form 1099-Ks include the gross amount of all reportable payment transactions to the IRS. Zonos submits this document to the IRS to report the proceeds of payment card and third-party network transactions made to each retailer. Retailers also receive Form 1099-Ks from Zonos for their taxes, but only retailers who meet the following criteria:

  • Zonos has or will process $600 or more in orders for the calendar year.
  • You are a Zonos retailer with a United States-based business entity.

Your Form 1099-K will be sent out at the end of January for the previous calendar year via email to your primary billing contact on file, which can be found or changed in Zonos Dashboard by going to SettingsBilling under the Account section on the left sidebar.

Why are 1099-Ks important? 

Form 1099-Ks are critical because businesses are required to report on their income tax return all the income they receive. Additionally, Form 1099-K improves voluntary tax compliance and encourages businesses to keep records that ensure what is being recorded is reflected in their business income.

To ensure that the information for your Form 1099-K is correct, you will need to enter your tax information and sign your W-9 in Zonos Dashboard.
