So does this mean that fiverr will send out 1099 forms to us at the start of the new year? Or will we see these on the website? We are required to send copies of a 1099 to the IRS with our taxes. Taxpayers are sent copies of the 1099 either in the mail or shown on a website to be copied.

My guess is that this section will also show the 1099 when it becomes available at the start of the new year. Hopefully in January 2021.

I just realized that this might put a stop to all of the fake US accounts! :rofl:

I was thinking the very same thing. With this requirement, there is no possible way for fraudsters to keep pretending they are from the USA. Now, to have USA listed on their profiles, they have to legally prove it, and pretenders in other parts of the world aren’t going to be able to do that. They’ll either have to be listed with their native country, or their accounts will be banished from Fiverr.

This will likely be a win-win for all buyers and sellers on Fiverr.

" win-win for all buyers and sellers on Fiverr."

Really Love the Words.

I see you have the W-9 showing on your account even though you are in India. So far it looks like everyone has that. I wonder if everyone will see the W-9 form when it comes out or only U.S. persons.

It would be interesting if every seller has that form, no matter what country they are in.

Or if they show they are in US when they aren’t then make up an SS number. 😬

Initially, It’s only for US seller. May be later, We everyone have to go for it.

I’m wondering if you see the W-9 when you look at your account setting. Do you have it? I assume you are not in the US so I wonder if everyone has that or only US persons.

I see a seller in India has it.

I think everybody can see the option, but only U.S. people can access it.

I’m from Italy and I have the option, but I can’t fill the form.

Correct me if I’m wrong but I thought that Fiverr’s HQ is in Israel.
As such, a seller that is doing business on Fiverr is doing it with Israel, with the US.
W-8BEN is for non US citizen who do business with the US. But we do business with Israel, so I assume we don’t need to sign. And why US citizens do need to sign the W-9.

Also, what about non US citizens who live in the US, or US citizen who don’t live in the US?

I vaguely remember doing a search in the forum regarding the W-8, and it seemed like because Fiverr is not US based non-us citizen don’t need it.

Interesting. I had to verify my identity with a picture of myself and my US government ID to prove myself and have to prove it again with my SSN, address, and tax ID?

How can others claim they are US based when their not? Fake ID?

Apparently.

They use a VPN to access the internet.

I know using a vpn will change your IP address, but it will definitely not change your government issued ID that shows your not from the US.

That’s what I’m trying to figure out.

That’s why people who pretend to be from the USA, won’t be able to prove it.
