In keeping with policies of other marketplaces, and in accordance with IRS reporting rules, Forca does not issue 1099-MISCs to Professionals. To access your yearly earning report, you can view your earnings directly from your Stripe account.
All Professionals are users of the Forca platform. No matter the type of income you’re reporting, you are not considered an employee of Forca. As such, you are not required to provide Forca EIN (Employer Identification Number) on your tax return.
Q: Isn’t a Form 1099-MISC required to file my taxes?
A: No. You are obligated to report income you receive, whether or not that income is reported on IRS Form 1099-MISC or any other tax report.
Q: Can someone at Forca help me figure out how to declare my income?
A: Forca is not able to provide you with any tax advice. As every person’s situation is different, we recommend that you consult your own tax advisor.
Q: Will I have to fill out a Form W-9 if Forca is not issuing my Form 1099-MISC?
A: Forca is required by the IRS to collect Form W-9 (US Instructors) and Form W-8BEN (non-US Instructors).

Revenue is calculated on volume of plan purchases and program purchases. As percentage splits change from time to time depending on various factors please check current rates inside of the app plan creation sections.
Revenue from Forca Marketplace will be reflected in your revenue report on the 3rd business day of each month, for plans and programs sold in the previous month. For example, revenue from August will be reflected in your revenue report on the 3rd business day of September.
Forca pays professionals 30 days after the end of the month. For example, if a user purchases your plan at any time in August, you will receive a payment within the first ten days of October. This delay allows all purchases to pass the 30 day refund period.
