Guide to 1099 tax forms for Shipt Shoppers

Shipt partners with Stripe to file 1099 tax forms that summarize your earnings. We’ve put together some FAQs to help you learn more about 1099s, and how to use Stripe Express to review your tax information and download your tax forms.

What is a 1099 tax form?

A 1099-NEC form summarizes your earnings as an independent contractor 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. 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 earned $600 or more in 2022 through Shipt in the US, Stripe will send an email (titled “Action required to receive your Shipt 2022 tax form”) inviting you to create an account and log in to Stripe Express.

I earned $600 or more in 2022. Why haven’t I received an email from Stripe?

If you earned $600 or more in 2022, you should expect to receive an email from Stripe by early January 2022. Emails will be sent out in phases to Shoppers from November 2022 through January 2023.

If you don’t receive an email by early January 2023, it’s possible that:

Please note that if you earned $600 or more 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:

In January, we strongly suggest that you ensure all of your tax filing details and delivery preferences are up to date in Stripe Express. Your name, address and Taxpayer Identification Number (Social Security Number /Employer Identification Number) are of primary importance.

How do I update my tax information?

Open the email from Stripe and click on the “Get Started” 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 10, 2022.

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?

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.
