Before you can file your 1099 tax forms, you must ensure they’re complete and accurate.
Obtain “Ready” status
Stripe categorizes your tax forms as follows:
You should obtain a “Ready” status prior to filing your tax forms.
Forms in “Needs attention” status may be missing the name, taxpayer identification number (TIN), or part of the address. You can provide missing information by updating the connected accounts or updating the tax form with CSV import.
Forms in “Will not file” status are below the IRS threshold and won’t be filed. You may choose to file tax forms that are below the threshold or are incomplete by specifying filing requirements in a CSV import. You can also use filing requirements to omit a tax form from filing.
Confirm tax form settings
Confirm the accuracy of your payer information and tax form settings before filing. You’ll reconfirm some tax form settings in the filing process, but you should also confirm the tax form settings before filing.
File your tax forms
When you’re ready to file, perform one final check of the forms that are in “Ready” status. All forms marked “Ready” (or “Ready!” if you applied filing requirements) are automatically filed when you complete the filing process.
From the Tax forms view in the Dashboard, click the File button, then File with IRS to begin the filing process.
You’ll first confirm your payer information. To change any payer information, close the filing process and go to your tax form settings. If you file forms with incorrect payer information, the IRS requires you to mail a letter with the corrections.
Next, confirm the settings for specific tax form types. To change the settings, close the filing process and go to your tax form settings.
Finally, accept a standard IRS penalty of perjury statement. Click the File button to queue your tax forms for automatic filing with the IRS.
Deliver your tax forms
If you chose the postal delivery option for your tax forms, they’ll be mailed automatically as part of the filing process. For information, see Deliver tax forms.
