If you have been issued a tax document (1099-K, 1099-MISC, 1099-NEC or 1042-S) and believe that it contains errors, the first step is to check your taxpayer information in your account.
Note: Changes made to taxpayer information after December 31 of the current year will be effective January 1 of the next calendar year.
Changing taxpayer information
You can edit your basic taxpayer information, or change the way your earnings are assigned between multiple taxpayers, by accessing the Taxes settings in your account.
Reporting an error
To report an error on a tax document, you need to create a support ticket in your account, making sure to include the reason for the change.
Viewing updated tax documents
When your tax document has been corrected, it will be available in your Account:
- Go to Taxes and select Tax Documents
- Click > next to the tax document you require
- Click or tap on Download PDF
If the earnings reported on Form 1099-K show a higher amount than you were expecting, it's most likely the difference between your net and gross earnings. Airbnb is required to report gross earnings (before deducting our host fee, and before any reservation cancellations/adjustments) on Form 1099-K.
If the earnings reported on Form 1099-MISC show a higher amount than you were expecting, it’s most likely the difference between your net and gross earnings. Airbnb is required to report gross earnings (before deducting the Luxury Retreats commission) on Form 1099-MISC.
