The amounts reported on the 1099 are based on when the funds were made available to you (i.e. the payment date) rather than when the order was delivered.
Direct deposits to drivers are processed on Tuesdays (except on major holidays) and Instant Cash Out is processed immediately. If the direct deposit occurs in the new year, those funds will be reflected on next year’s 1099 form. However, if you initiate Instant Cash Out before 11:45pm on December 31st the funds will be released before midnight and the cashed out funds will be reflected on the current year’s 1099 form rather than next year’s form.
Direct Deposit: If you make a delivery on December 31st but the direct deposit is not sent to the bank until January 2nd, your pay related to that order will appear on next year’s 1099 form.
Instant Cash Out: If you make a delivery on December 31st and initiate Instant Cash Out before 11:45pm local time, it will count for this year’s 1099 form.
