By law, restaurant partners must declare and pay taxes on income earned from Ritual sales regardless of the amount. A 1099-K is only issued should the relevant thresholds noted below be met.
How is the total on my 1099-K calculated?
If you are located in the US and gross payments exceed $20,000 with over 200 transactions, Ritual is required to report your total gross payments from Ritual orders on the 1099-K form without subtracting expenses, such as:
- sales tax collected by you
Please note that the 1099-K will report aggregate gross payments processed for all restaurants using the same Tax Identification Number (TIN).
Restaurant Partners in Massachusetts:
Massachusetts uses a threshold of $600 with no transaction threshold. If your tax reporting information is associated with Massachusetts, you will receive a 1099-K if your gross payments equal or exceed $600 irrespective of the number of transactions. The 1099-K will be filed with the Massachusetts Department of Revenue. If your gross payments exceed $20,000, this will also be sent to the IRS.
