What is a 1099 tax form?

A 1099-NEC form summarizes Dashers' earnings as independent contractors in the US. It’s provided to you and the IRS, as well as some US states, if you earn $600 or more in 2022. If you're a Dasher, you’ll need this form to file your taxes.

A 1099-K form summarizes your sales activity as a Merchant. It’s provided to you and the IRS, as well as some US states, if you have more than $600 in sales activity in 2022. If you’re a Merchant, you’ll need this form to file your taxes.

What is Stripe Express, and how do I access it?

Stripe Express allows you to update your tax information, download your tax forms, and track your earnings. If you're a Dasher and earned $600 or more in 2022 through DoorDash in the US, Stripe will send an email (titled “Confirm your tax information with DoorDash”) inviting you to create an account and log in to Stripe Express.

If you’re a Merchant, Stripe will send an email inviting you to create an account and log in to Stripe Express if you meet the following criteria in 2022:

I earned enough to need a 1099 form in 2022. Why haven’t I received an email from Stripe?

If you earned enough to need a 1099 form in 2022, you should have received an email from Stripe by January 12, 2023. Emails were sent out in phases to Dashers and Merchants starting in November 2022.

Please note that if you earned enough to need a 1099 form in 2022 and do not receive an email from Stripe by early January, you will be mailed a paper copy of your 1099 tax form.

When will I receive my 1099 tax form?

Your 1099 tax form will be sent to you by January 31, 2023 (plus up to 10 business days for mail delivery of a paper form). Here are a few important dates to keep in mind:

How do I update my tax information?

Open the email from Stripe and click on the “Verify information” button, which will prompt you to create a Stripe Express account. After you create an account, you’ll be able to review your tax information (e.g., name, address, and SSN or EIN) and make any necessary changes via Stripe Express. Please update your information no later than January 6, 2023.

Please note: If you don’t consent to e-delivery by January 6, 2023, we’ll automatically mail your 1099 tax form to the address on file, so it’s critical that your information is current, correct, and complete. You can still update your information via Stripe Express after January 6, 2023 and download your 1099 electronically. However, you will not be mailed a new paper copy of your 1099 tax form.

When you are setting up your account certain information will be locked once a legal entity is verified. You’ll need to contact Stripe Support and they can assist you with editing the below information:

Why is Stripe requesting my Social Security number (SSN), Employer Identification Number (EIN), or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN)?

Your SSN, EIN, or ITIN is required to file your 1099 tax form with the IRS and relevant state tax authorities.

Is my tax information secure?

Stripe’s security tools and best practices ensure that your sensitive information is safely stored and encrypted. Learn more about the safeguards we've put in place to protect your information.

How can I download my 1099 tax form?

If you create a Stripe Express account and consent to e-delivery, Stripe will email you to let you know when your 1099 tax form is available for download via Stripe Express. If you don’t consent to e-delivery, Stripe will mail you a paper copy of your 1099 tax form instead.

How do I get a corrected 1099 tax form?

If you feel you need corrections made to a 1099 tax form that has already been ‘Filed’, use the edit option in the Tax Forms page of Stripe Express. Information you edit will not appear in the 1099 tax form in the Stripe Express dashboard but it is shared with DoorDash. You should reach out to DoorDash after you’ve made the edits you want and they can assist you with a correction. Once DoorDash ‘Files’ your correction, you will be notified via email and you will see a new 1099 tax form appear in the Stripe Express dashboard.

Please note that it can take up to 72 hours after the platform files the correction for you to be notified.

Why don’t the earnings on my 1099 tax form match what I see in the Earnings page of Stripe Express?
