Federal Tax Requirements
Federal law mandates that we report to the IRS all non-employee compensation exceeding $600 in a calendar year. This means that if you earn more than $600 in any year as a DanceSafe affiliate, we are required to report your earnings to the IRS. To do that, we will need you to fill out and submit to us an IRS Form W9, which includes your name, address and social security number.
You do NOT need to do this right away.
Because you might not earn $600 in your first year as a DanceSafe affiliate, we do not require you to submit a Form W9 immediately. However, upon earning $400 in any calendar year, you will need to email us a completed and signed IRS Form W9. We may suspend your affiliate payouts and/or deactivate your affiliate account until you do. But don’t worry. We will notify you via email when your payouts have reach $400 in a calendar year, reminding you about this obligation, and you will have plenty of time to get it done.
Although we are required to report your earnings to the IRS if they exceed $600, you may or may not have to have to report them yourself. It is your responsibility to know whether you are legally required to file taxes in a given year, but in general, if you earned less than $12,200 that year you are are not required to file. There are exceptions to this, and the IRS continually changes its rules, so make sure you are up-to-date on IRS requirements. This link will help you get started.
