What is Mercari W-9 Tax Form?

Mercari W9 What is Mercari 1099K? W9? Am I an individual or Business on Mercari?  Do I have to give Mercari my Social Security Number or ITIN?  Going into 2022 everything changed, and while I hate to be critical or political, the changes impacting online sellers going forward are significant enough, that I have to give credit to those who deserve the credit, even if that means being political.   (Please Note: The information provided is in no way intended to act as legal tax advice.

You may have read in the news or heard in the news, that Joe Biden and the House Majority in Congress under Nancy Pelosi, have proposed giving the IRS the authority to be mandatorily informed by banks and financial institutions notification and details about all transfers and deposits of any money over $600.   Of course rational moderates and conservatives within both the republican and democrat parties rejec

Small Business Recall Gavin Newsom

Trust me when I say, I could complain about California Governor Newsom for hours, but what would be the point 

But what I can do, I can put in simple words, in a place everyone is going to see, on my SUV 

Gavin put me out of business. I was a full time sole proprietor for six years. 

I had just turned a profit for the first time, bringing my business in Los Angeles into the black and out of the red, for the first time, only to be legally forced out of business by my governor's abuse and politically motivated executive powers. Many of which have now been deemed illegal by the supreme court.


After a year of being out of business, not eligible for the boasted PPP that the SBA and state representatives, funneled to private universities, corporations, and major Businesses, because I am a Micro Business.

Additionally, denied money six months of pandemic assistance, because I tried to ride it out, working full-time without any money coming in. Why, because the EDD, doesn't care if you were paid or earned any money. If you are honest and tell them you did anything that could be classified as "work", you get denied.

So as an independent and insignificant small business, whose only value in California, is paying taxes and license fees, I have only one way to voice my rejection of our governments state management. 

A sign. Not just one sign, but four signs.

One on the back of my car. One on the back of the bicycle I used for my now defunct business, and two self made magnetic signs for my SUV.

According to a research study at Yale University. 48.3% of all of California's Small businesses are now permanently out of business.

So I am not alone, and I hope others will find their own way to help recall Gavin Newsom, in unity with other small business owners.
