As a Nursa clinician, you will be filing taxes with a 1099 form. This form is used to report non-employment income, the income you earned as an independent contractor.
As a taxpayer, you are required to report your income when you file your taxes each year.
When you view the pay on a job card on the app or website, you are being shown your actual hourly pay without tax deductions. Because you are an independent contractor, Nursa does not take any taxes out of your paycheck, which means that you’ll need to manage and pay your taxes every year.
Verifying Your Tax Information
To verify that your tax information is correct in your Nursa profile, first go to the Wallet section of the app.
Once you are in the Wallet section, scroll down until you see “Electronic W-9.”
Click on the edit pencil in order to verify your information. From here you can fill out your legal name, mailing address, and social security number. Make sure to double check that this information is correct, as this is what we use to send you your end-of-year tax documents.
Filing Your Taxes
If you picked up shifts through Nursa and earned less than $600 over the course of the year, you will not be receiving a 1099 form to complete; however, you are still required to report this income as other earned income on your 1040 tax form. Please check your specific state tax laws to get more detailed instructions on how to file.
If you earned more than $600 using Nursa over the course of the year, we will be sending you a 1099 form via email & standard postal mail for you to file your taxes. More information and instructions on how to file can be found at the IRS website, linked below:
Important Note: The 1099 and tax year reflect the date that you were paid and not the date you worked. If you worked on Dec 31, 2021 but we didn’t pay out until the following Friday (Jan 7, 2022), that payment will not be included in 2021 taxes and 1099. It will be included in the year that it was paid.
