U.S. Taxpayer Information Reporting Updates

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) requires Upwork to file a 1099 forms report for freelancers who earned $600 or more on Upwork during 2022. In addition to sending this form to the IRS early next year, we also send it to the address that freelancers have listed under Tax Information in their Upwork account.

We encourage freelancers to review and update their tax information as soon as possible here.

Ensuring we have the correct tax residence address and tax ID on file for all freelancers allows us to correctly file their 1099 forms as required by the IRS, as well as send the forms to the correct address this upcoming tax filing season.

If this information is out-of-date for freelancers, it will likely cause a delay in receiving their 1099 form in the mail, and may require us to withhold income tax from their future earnings to comply with IRS regulations. Freelancers need this form in order to file their tax returns in the upcoming tax season.
