Do I Qualify for a 1099-K?
All accounts that meet both the following criteria qualify for a 1099-K and must be reported to the IRS:
More than $20,000 in gross sales from goods or services in the calendar year
AND more than 200 transactions in the calendar year
These reporting thresholds are based on the aggregate gross sales volume processed on all accounts that use the same Tax Identification Number (TIN). These thresholds are based on credit card transactions processed through HouseCall Pro and do not apply to other tender types.
If you qualify, we will mail you a copy of your 1099-K form to the business address associated with your HouseCall Pro account.
