In compliance with U.S. Treasury regulations, Plexus Worldwide is required to issue Form 1099-NEC (note that in previous years you would have received a 1099-MISC but due to changes implemented by the IRS you will be receiving a 1099-NEC for tax year 2020) and report to the IRS any non-employee (including Brand Ambassadors) earnings that total more than $600 for the year (including commissions, gifts, prizes and awards). Those who earned less than $600 for the year will NOT receive a 1099. Plexus advises that Brand Ambassadors contact a tax professional for any tax related questions they may have.
Please Note: At this time, Brand Ambassadors located in Canada, New Zealand, and Australia are responsible for tracking their own income and reporting as needed per their local tax requirements.
Mailing of 1099 Forms
1099 forms will be finalized and mailed by January 31. Brand Ambassadors who have opted into the email program prior to January 15th will receive an email when their 1099 has been prepared.
If you have questions such as:
- 1099 has not been received
- 1099 needs to be sent to an alternate address
- Personal information needs to be updated (name, SSN)
- Tax professional has a question
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with Brand Ambassador's information and explanation of issue.
