If you earn at least $600 dollars from us in any given calendar year, we will have to further authenticate your identity for our own tax purposes and issue you a 1099-MISC at the end of the year.

If you don’t authenticate yourself at the time of you crossing the $600 threshold, it could delay you from receiving future payments.
