As an independent contractor, you are responsible for keeping track of your earnings and accurately reporting them in tax filings. Qwick doesn't provide a breakdown of your total earnings between base pay, tips, etc. If you have any questions about what to report on your taxes, you should consult with a tax professional. Qwick cannot provide tax advice, nor can we verify the accuracy of any publicly available tax guidance online.

Keep in mind: Qwick doesn't automatically withhold taxes. We calculate the subtotal of your earnings based on the date the earnings were deposited—not the date a shift was completed.

If you earned $600 or more in 2021 on the Qwick platform, you’ll receive a 1099-NEC form via our payment partner Stripe. Click here to visit the Stripe Support website.

How to get your 1099:

  1. Go to your Stripe Express account (within the Qwick app or online).

  2. Confirm your delivery method and personal information is correct within the Stripe Express dashboard. You have until January 24th, 2022 to change the delivery method of your 1099-NEC form.

  3. Questions? Stripe support can help!

Note: You can change the delivery method to e-delivery within the Stripe Express dashboard to go paperless. If you'd like to receive a physical copy of your 1099, please change your delivery method by emailing the Stripe Express Support at [email protected].

What tax forms will I get?

The only tax form that eligible Qwick Professionals will receive is the 1099-NEC, and this is ONLY for Qwick Professionals who earned $600 or more on the platform in 2021. Qwick Professionals who earned less will NOT receive and do not need a 1099 form.

What is a 1099-NEC?

1099-NEC forms are federal income tax information forms used to report independent contractor income. Since these independent contractors are not on payroll, they do not have taxes withheld. The forms are filed with the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and, if required, state tax departments.

1099-MISC are now only sent to those needing to report miscellaneous income from rent or attorney fees. Federal W-2s are sent to employees on payroll to report their wages, taxes, etc.

How will tax forms be delivered to me?

Through your Stripe dashboard, within your account tab, there is a section labeled "Tax Forms." If you opt for e-delivery, your form will be downloadable from there. If you opt for paper mail, your form will be delivered to the address listed within Stripe (expect this in the first or second week of February).

What’s the difference between e-delivery and paper delivery?

Paper delivery means you will receive your 1099-NEC form via the mail.

E-delivery is a completely paperless process for receiving your 1099 form. It is the fastest, most convenient option. If you opt into e-delivery, your 1099 form will be delivered electronically once taxes are filed by January 31, 2022. If you do not log in to Stripe Express and consent to e-delivery, then you will receive a physical form via postal mail.

Please note: Stripe will not be able to provide you with an additional mailed copy if you selected e-delivery. You may print out your e-copy to serve as a physical copy. If you require a physical copy mailed to you but selected e-delivery, please reach out to Qwick support by texting 79425.

How can I get my 2021 Qwick earnings history?

Qwick Professionals do not need to calculate their 2021 earnings themselves - that will be clearly indicated on your 1099 form. However, if you want to estimate your earnings prior to receiving your 1099 form, all Qwick Professionals can do so by logging in to Stripe Express.

What do I do if my 1099 form has incorrect information on it?

  • If your personal information (e.g., name, address, etc.) is incorrect: Please log in to Stripe Express to correct your information. A corrected electronic 1099 form will be generated in 24 hours. If you have not yet received the Stripe Express invitation to create an account and made over $600 with Qwick in 2021, please reach out to Stripe support.

  • When you are setting up your account certain information will be locked once a legal entity is verified. You’ll need to contact Stripe Support and they can assist you with updating the below information:

    • Date of birth

  • If you believe your earnings total is incorrect: Your full earnings history is available in Stripe Express. Note, however, that Stripe Express includes your earnings from other platforms that partner with Stripe for tax purposes.

What if I earned money via other sources in 2021?

It is your responsibility to track your own earnings and pay the corresponding taxes. Your 1099 form that you will receive from Stripe in relation to your work via the Qwick Platform is only reflective of that income.
