Account tax identification numbers

Storing and rendering your tax ID numbers with Stripe Billing.

Displaying your tax IDs on invoice documents is a common regulatory requirement.

With Stripe, you can add up to 10 tax IDs to your account. Tax IDs are displayed in the header of invoice and credit note PDFs.

You can:

  • select a default tax ID to appear on every invoice and credit note PDF
  • define a list of tax IDs to appear on a specific invoice


Tax IDs can be added and deleted via the Invoice template settings page on the Dashboard. Once a tax ID has been added in the Dashboard, it can be set as the default tax ID for every invoice and credit note PDF. Tax IDs are immutable: the country and ID cannot be changed after the tax ID has been saved to your account.

To display multiple tax IDs on an invoice, you can use the API or the Invoice Editor to specify which tax IDs to show.

Adding and removing IDs

Visit the Invoice template settings page. Scroll down to the “Manage tax information” section to add a new tax ID or remove an existing tax ID:

Setting a default tax ID

On the Invoice template settings page, scroll down to “Manage tax information” and locate the tax ID you want to set as the default. Click the “more” menu and select “Set as default.”

Setting a default account tax ID in the Dashboard

Once a tax ID is set at the default, a label will be visible in the tax information box:

Displaying multiple tax IDs on invoices

Using the Dashboard

You can set a list of tax IDs in the Dashboard using the Invoice Editor. Account tax IDs cannot be modified once an Invoice has been finalized.

In the Invoice Editor, scroll down to the “Advanced Options” section and toggle it open. Click the checkboxes to toggle which tax IDs will be displayed on that invoice. To remove tax IDs from the invoice, uncheck the boxes.

Adding, changing, and removing account tax IDs from an invoice in the Invoice Editor

Using the API

After a tax ID has been added to your account, you can use the API to specify up to 10 tax IDs for an individual invoice. Account tax IDs can be added when creating a new invoice using the invoice create endpoint by passing a list of object IDs to the account_tax_ids parameter.

Removing, changing, or adding account tax IDs on an existing invoice can be done using the invoice update endpoint by passing a list of object IDs to the account_tax_ids parameter.
