In compliance with the IRS, anyone who earns $600 or more in a calendar year must submit a W-9 form to MMR. You can find and complete a W-9 form on the IRS website and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org in advance of earning $600. If do not wish to submit a W-9, you have the option to pause your account before reaching $599 and be reinstated in the next financial year. However, it is your responsibility to keep track of your earnings. If you would like your account paused, you must reach out to us before reaching $599.
If you exceed the $600 amount and we do not have W-9 on file for you, an MMR representative will reach out to you before the end of the financial year requesting a W-9.
