When you file your 1099 forms from the Tax forms view in the Dashboard, Stripe submits your forms to the IRS and all qualifying states. We automatically apply state thresholds when generating 1099 tax forms, so you can easily determine which forms need state filing based on the addresses of your connected accounts.
Stripe supports e-filing in all states but won’t transmit forms to states on your behalf that have backup or state withholding amounts. Review 1099 form requirements by state and work with your tax advisor to make sure you understand the tax requirements specific to your business.
Prepare to file with the states
Before filing forms in your Dashboard, do the following to make sure forms are filed correctly with both the IRS and states:
When you’re ready to file forms in your Dashboard, the forms for IRS and state reporting agencies will be filed at the same time. To understand the number of forms being filed in each state, click Show state-by-state breakdown on the File Federal and state tax forms window in the filing flow. This page also indicates whether the state’s registration or withholding ID is missing or has already been provided. A yellow informational banner displays at the top of every page in the filing flow if state IDs are missing from states that are being filed.
Stripe can’t file tax forms with the state authorities if state withholding is present. If you have forms with state withholding, Stripe won’t file those with the states but will make the files available as an export and file with the IRS. Please check the Exports & Imports section in the Dashboard for the downloaded file. Please consult a tax advisor on how/whether to file these forms with state agencies.

Correct 1099 reports with the states
When you file a correction with the IRS, the state correction is filed at the same time. To file a correction with a state for a form that was already filed, you must create a correction.
Frequently asked questions
The following section provides answers to common questions about filing tax forms through Connect.
What happens if a connected account needs their form filed in multiple states?
Stripe does not support this at the moment. Stripe only checks eligibility and files in the state where the connected account’s address is registered.
When we click File, does Stripe file with the IRS and the States at the same time, or do we have the ability to make changes if one has a later deadline?
Stripe files with the IRS and the State right away when you file the submission and you can’t make changes to that. But platforms are always able to make “corrections” and then file them and Stripe takes care of processing those corrections to the IRS and the State.
How do I know if a particular form will be filed with the state?
We’ve introduced a new State filing status. For more information, see Understand tax form status.
Can I override the filing requirement for State filing without overriding the filing requirement for Federal filing?
No. If you override the filing requirements, it applies to both federal and state filing.
