Payout Information & Policies


Tax Information

All iWantClips Store Operators are Independent Contractors and not employees. This means that all payouts you receive as a Store Operator will have no taxes withheld and you will be paid 100% of your earnings, for tax purposes.

U.S. Stores - You will be required to complete a W9-Form in order to open your store. A 1099-MISC IRS tax form will be sent to you on or before January 31st (with the SSN or EIN you submitted on your W-9 Form) from Gatsby Enterprises, Inc.

The 1099 will contain the total income your Store has earned during the year and is to be used by you to file your annual income tax return. This form will also be sent to the IRS for all stores that earn more than $600.00 in a calendar year.

*If you have any tax reporting questions, please contact us at billing@iwantclips.com with the subject line Tax Inquiry.

      *Requests must be made before 12AM EST and will be issued the following business day.
      **Requests made Friday-Sunday will show up within Monday’s payout.

How to Update Payout Information

Artists may set or update their payout method at any time within their Artist Dashboard by clicking on the “Account” tab. Within this section, click on the “Payout Information” button to view and edit your selected payout method.



Switching Between Payout Options

If you want to switch to a different payout option you can do so by going into your account and editing your payout information here. There are no penalties or fees for making changes.
