About tax reporting for your 2021 earnings

Hi instructors!

 

It’s January, and we know some of you in the US are already thinking about preparing to file your 2021 taxes. So, we wanted to provide an update on how Udemy will be providing year-end tax reporting this year.

 

To make it smoother and easier to access your tax forms, we’ve integrated with 1099Pro to provide access to your 2021 tax forms directly on Udemy. When your forms become available, you’ll see a secure download link appear on your Payout & Tax Details page. If you request corrections by writing to Instructor Support, any corrected forms will appear on this page as well.

 

Physical copies will also be mailed to the address you provided when you submitted your tax form.

You can expect to receive an end-of-year tax form if…

 

  • You filed a W-9 (for US persons and entities) and received at least $10 in payments during 2021. You’ll receive Form 1099-MISC. (Note that this doesn’t apply for S and C corporations, who won’t receive an end-of-year tax form from Udemy.)
  • You filed any other tax form and received any payments from US sources, such as sales to US learners, during 2021. You’ll receive Form 1042-S.
  • You didn’t file any tax form and received at least $10 in payments during 2021. You’ll receive Form 1099-MISC.

We expect to have 1099s available by early February, and 1042s available by mid-March. We’ll keep you posted here as your reporting becomes available.

 

Feel free to jump in below if you have questions about the process of receiving your end-of-year tax forms. Note that we can’t give tax advice, so any questions about what to do with your form once you’ve got it should be addressed to a tax professional.

 

Teach on,
