Our 1099 Service

    Guru.com provides a free 1099-MISC tax form service to U.S. based Freelancers and Employers.

    Our 1099-MISC service simplifies the process of creating and submitting a 1099-MISC tax form at the end of the year. If you qualify for and opt-in to our 1099-INT tax form service, we will issue 1099-MISC tax forms to your Freelancers every January, on your behalf.

    In order to qualify for our 1099-MISC tax form service you must reside in the United Stated and pay at least $600 USD to a U.S. based Freelancer in a single calendar year.

    If you qualify to use this service, you must opt-in in before December 15th. If you opt-in after December 15th, we may not be able to provide you with this service.

    You can sign up for this service by visiting the Edit my Account page, check the box Opt into Guru’s free 1099-MISC tax service and save the change.

    Invoices that you receive will include a status that indicates whether the 1099-MISC service has been applied or whether the invoice does not qualify for this service. You can view the 1099-MISC service status by clicking the relevant invoice number on the Payments page. Look for the 1099-MISC line and you’ll see one of three statuses:

    • Yes – Service was applied to this invoice
    • No – Service was not applied to this invoice
    • NA – Service is not available with this freelancer (they are probably outside of the US)

    Note: Our free 1099-MISC service does not work retroactively. Only payments received after the “opt in” date will be represented.
