Only online sellers who exceed the 
IRS thresholds will receive an IRS Form 1099-K from Amazon. However, all income earned must be reported to the IRS. Visit How to File Taxes for Selling Online for details on the IRS thresholds. Sellers who do not meet the thresholds can calculate gross receipts with the Annual Sales Report.
