Recent updates to Form 1099-K

    In 2023, real estate professionals on Redfin were supposed to face a significant shift through updated IRS guidelines for 1099 reporting, which would reshape the way income documentation is handled.
  • • Revised reporting threshold: The IRS has officially confirmed that the 1099-K threshold will remain at $20,000 for the 2023 tax year. The proposed reduction to $5,000 has been deferred until the 2024 tax year.

Decoding Redfin 1099 taxes

As a platform connecting real estate professionals with potential clients, Redfin taxes are paid on the income generated by these professionals. Similar to other platforms like Realtor.com, Redfin doesn't directly tax the individual; it's up to the real estate professional to report and pay taxes on their Redfin income. As the responsibility for Redfin taxes falls on real estate professionals earning income through the platform, monitoring earnings becomes essential. If you cross the 1099-K income threshold, Redfin will send the form directly to your account on the platform. Any income you earn on Redfin will be reported to the IRS by the platform, so don’t skimp out on your tax payments.

I’m a Redfin agent, what tax forms do I need?

The main form Redfin professionals need is the 1099-K form. You might receive a 1099-MISC if you got any miscellaneous payments over $600 from Redfin. If you’re paying self-employment tax, you’ll need Schedule C to report your earned income which you’ll then add to the standard Form 1040.

How can I lower Redfin 1099 taxes?

    Here are some ways you can lower your Redfin 1099 taxes:
  • • Business deductions: You can write off ordinary and necessary business expenses related to your Redfin activities like marketing, travel and other operational costs.
  • • Estimated taxes: Tax liabilities over $1,000 have to be paid off quarterly to avoid IRS penalties.
  • • Retirement plan contributions: You can contribute to a retirement plan to reduce your taxable income.
  • • Tax credits: Explore credits like the Child Tax Credit or Earned Income Tax Credit as a way to minimize your taxes.

Redfin 1099 tax write-offs

    Some common write-offs for Redfin agents are:

  • • Office supplies and technology: Business supply expenses and any technology needed to manage your real estate business.

  • • January 31: Redfin typically sends 1099-K forms by this date.
