If you earned $600 or more in a calendar year on GigFinesse, you’ll receive a 1099-NEC form via our payment processor, Stripe. For more information on setting up Stripe in order to receive show payouts, see our Stripe setup article here.


What is a 1099-NEC form?

1099-NEC, which stands for “non-employee contractor” is a tax income form used to report earnings other than wages or salary. This form is filed with both the IRS - the federal-level Internal Revenue service - and some state-level revenue services. The 1099-NEC form you receive via Stripe will detail the earnings you made through GigFinesse. Please note that this form is only to be created and sent to the requisite state bodies if you’ve earned over $600 in a calendar year.

Does GigFinesse send any other tax forms?

Artists on the GigFinesse platform are treated as “non-employee contractors” for tax purposes, and thus the only tax form that GigFinesse sends out for its artists is the 1099-NEC form, and only for those artists earning $600 or more in a calendar year.

How do I access my tax information?

Accessing your tax information is simple - log into your GigFinesse account and navigate to “Account Settings.” From here, click into you Stripe Express account via the “Manage your Stripe account” button. Once in your Stripe Express account, click on “Tax Forms.” If eligible to receive a 1099-NEC form, Stripe will display it for you in January of the year following the taxable events. Alternatively, Stripe will also [mail / email] your files to the email address you have listed with them.
