Should I expect to receive a tax form from Airbnb?
Depending on your account status, forms submitted to Airbnb, and other factors, you may receive a tax form from Airbnb.
As always, we encourage you to consult a tax professional for assistance reporting your income. If you think you've submitted the wrong information, you can make changes to taxpayer information you've already submitted.
Airbnb expects to issue tax forms to the following categories of persons:
US persons who have earned over $20,000 and had 200+ reservations
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) requires that all US companies processing payments, including Airbnb, report the gross earnings of US customers that earn over $20,000 and have 200+ transactions in the calendar year. If you cross both IRS thresholds in a calendar year, Airbnb will provide you with a Form 1099-K.Delivery of Form 1099-K
Any Form 1099-K issued to you will be available in your Payout Preferences. You'll receive an email notification when your form is ready, typically in late January of each year. We also mail a copy to the address you provided along with your taxpayer information, unless you opted for electronic delivery only. You may receive more than one Form 1099-K if your taxpayer information is listed on multiple Airbnb accounts.
Non-US persons who have submitted a Form W-8
Hosts with US sourced earnings who have filled out a Form W-8 will be provided a Form 1042-S.Delivery of Form 1042-S
You'll receive a Form 1042-S in the mail at the address you entered when you submitted your tax information, typically in late February of each year. The IRS requires that we mail Form 1042-S by the end of March.
Hosts that had funds withheld from their payouts for taxes
If taxes were withheld from your payouts during the calendar year, you’ll be provided with the appropriate tax form so that you may account for the withholdings on your income tax return. Read more about withheld taxes.
Airbnb service providers (photographers, translators, others)
Airbnb service providers, including photographers, translators, and additional service providers, will receive a Form 1099-MISC.Delivery of Form 1099-MISC
Any Form 1099-MISC issued to you will be available in your Payout Preferences. You'll receive an email notification when your form is ready, typically in late January of each year. We also mail a copy to the address you provided along with your taxpayer information, unless you opted for electronic delivery only.
