Instawork does not take out any taxes from your paycheck. Instawork Professionals are 1099 Independent Contractors. At the end of the year, Professionals will receive a 1099 tax form in the mail. You'll need to file the 1099 tax form and pay taxes on your income.
In order to ensure correct reporting, your Instawork account MUST have a valid social security number and complete address.
We are not tax lawyers and we're not giving advice on how to handle your taxes. We simply want you to be aware of what you'll need to do at the end of the year.
