Etsy sellers must pay income tax on their income, usually based on the amount they earned from selling their products, less their business expenses. In addition to reporting your gross income to the IRS on Form 1099-K, Etsy must also report its sales income on your tax return, regardless of whether you receive a 1099-K.
The Schedule SE form for self-employment tax includes coverage for Medicare and Social Security taxes if your Etsy shop’s total net income is $400 or more.
