WooCommerce Payments: Taxes

WooCommerce Payments itself does not contain any functionality related to charging tax on customer purchases. However, WooCommerce Payments does have some features that can help when you need to report your sales to your local tax authority.

1099-Ks for U.S. merchants

↑ Back to top

In the U.S., a Form 1099-K is an information filing required by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). WooCommerce Payments is required to issue a 1099-K to U.S. persons if their total payments exceeds a specific minimum threshold.

We have a lengthy guide to 1099-Ks that should answer most questions. Keep in mind, however, that the WooCommerce Payments developers and support staff are not tax experts, and as such, there will be certain questions we cannot answer definitively.

VAT invoices for EU merchants

↑ Back to top

For EU merchants who may require VAT invoices for WooCommerce Payments fees, those are provided under the Payments > Documents menu in your dashboard. (You will not see this menu if your business is outside the EU.) Our Documents page has further details on how to update your VAT info and access your invoices.
