Here you go:


Short answers: you will not receive a 1099 from Rover nor do you need one to file a Schedule C, which independent contractors use to report their income.

If you do a search on this board, you will find many suggestions relating to expenses you can claim to offset earnings.

From Rover's Website:

All 1099s will be sent via mail on January 31st. An electronic copy of your 1099 will also be emailed via http://tax1099.com on January 30 or January 31st. If you do not want to access your 1099 electronically, please disregard the email from http://tax1099.com.

Remember, not all sitters will be eligible to receive a 1099 from Rover, see section Will I receive a 1099 from Rover? for more information.

Will I receive a 1099 from Rover?

Whether you receive a 1099 from Rover will depend on how you’ve withdrawn your Rover funds and how much you’ve withdrawn. Here’s how it breaks down for sitters/walkers:

If you’ve been paid out over $600 via check over the course of a calendar year, Rover will send you a 1099 tax form.

Note: Rover does not handle tax documentation for redemptions made via PayPal, as per IRS rules, the entity that distributes these funds to you is responsible for generating these documents, as appropriate. To learn more, see this IRS document, 2018 instructions for Form 1099-MISC. If you redeem your earnings through PayPal, then PayPal will handle your tax documentation in accordance with its own tax reporting practices. For more information, see the PayPal article How does PayPal report my sales to the IRS? Will I receive a 1099 tax statement?

Rover doesn't issue them to individuals yet, you may find the template to file by yourself all over the web, that's what I've found googling for the https://1099-misc-form.pdffiller.com/ (form 1099-MISC online) but you all the way need the Rover's credentials in order to do so
