Fees & financials
We’re committed to building a vibrant marketplace that makes selling seamless and easy by offering a digital copy of your 1099-K.
Go paperless! In the coming weeks you’ll be able to opt in to get a digital copy of your Form 1099-K
Online marketplaces like eBay are required to issue a Form 1099-K annually to sellers that have surpassed federal or state thresholds within a calendar year. We’ll issue the form by January 31 and we’ve made it easy for you to opt-in to receive a paperless copy. Going paperless is a convenient, secure, and reliable way to get your Form 1099-K.
Here’s what you need to do
- Log into your account. You’ll see a notification banner in Seller Hub and My eBay prompting you to opt-in to receive a paperless Form 1099-K.
- Choose to opt in by clicking the link provided in the banner.
- Check that your email address is up to date. If the email bounces back, we’ll mail you a paper copy.
If I opt in to receive a paperless copy can I still get one mailed to me?
Yes. You’ll just need to reach out to eBay Customer Service to request your paper copy and it will be mailed to your address on file.
How will I know when my paperless 1099-K is available for download?
Your Form 1099-K will be made available by January 31. You’ll receive a notification via email when the Form 1099-K is issued. We recommend you check or update your email address on file. Learn more about updating your account information.
If your email address is returned undeliverable, and the correct email address can’t be obtained from your records, then we’ll mail you the paper copy. For more information visit our 1099-K and Tax Withholding page.
Can I choose to opt out if I decide I no longer want to receive a paperless Form 1099-K?
Yes, you can opt out at any time by changing the option located on the Taxes page from My eBay or under the Payments tab in Seller Hub. A paper copy will be mailed to you if you opt out of paperless delivery.
What if I don't opt in for a paperless Form 1099-K?
A paper copy will be mailed to you. Please check and update your address, if required.
How long will paperless copies of my Form 1099-K be stored?
You’ll be able to access your paperless 1099-K forms for the previous 12 years.
