U.S. Income Tax Forms

Will I be receiving a 1099-MISC from Tidelift? I can’t find any documentation here or on Hyperwallet on the subject.

File Form 1099-MISC for each person to whom you have paid during the year … at least $600 in … services performed by someone who is not your employee


You must send a 1099-MISC form to non-employees you paid $600 or more to in the calendar year.

I received over $600 in 2018 from Tidelift, but I have not received a submitted 1099-MISC. I believe I need this information to complete my 1040 form. The only tax document in Hyperwallet is the W9 I submitted to Hyperwallet.

Hi, deckar01!

This is Brian, Tidelift’s Head of Finance and Ops. If you received +$600 during 2018, you (and anyone else who did) will be receiving a 1099-MISC.

Apparently our payments partner has an issue uploading the 1099s. They have assured me that the 1099s should be uploaded to the portal by 6:30pm EST today. You can find yours by navigating to Resources>Tax Docs in the menu at the top.

Please feel free to reach back out if they don’t show up or have any other questions.


There are still no “year end” tax documents for me on hyperwallet.

If your Tidelift earnings didn’t cross the $600 threshold to necessitate a 1099*, one won’t be available in the portal. Please let me know if you’d like me to verify your 2018 income and I can reply with a private message that includes the final total.

The report I generated was including a payment from 2019 that pushed it over the $600. Sorry for the confusion. Thanks for your help.

No worries. Sorry for the confusion.
