Request a W-9 form from Stripe
Stripe does not have a W-9 to provide, as W-9 forms are typically used when payments are made to a vendor in response to an invoice. Because businesses using Stripe don’t actively send payments to Stripe directly, a W-9 form isn’t generally needed.
Stripe makes outbound payments to businesses in the form of payouts, so Stripe will issue a 1099-K form if the appropriate reporting threshold is met.
