Taxes for photographers and other service providers
If you’re a photographer, translator, or other service provider paid through your Airbnb account, be sure to complete your taxpayer information so we can process your payouts.
In the USA
US persons may fill out a Form W-9. In January, if you’ve submitted a Form W-9 and earned $600 or more during the previous year, we’ll provide you with a Form 1099-MISC showing your earnings under “Box 7 – Nonemployee compensation.” Corporate service providers will not receive a tax form.
Outside the USA
Non-US persons may submit a Form W-8 to certify that their earnings are not subject to US tax.
If you’re unsure which form to submit, consult a tax professional for help. Find more information about US federal tax.
