Sawyer partners with Stripe to file 1099 tax forms that summarize your earnings or sales activities. We’ve put together some FAQs to help you learn how to use Stripe Express to review your tax information and download your tax forms.
If you have already created a Stripe Express account, you can log in to manage your tax information at connect.stripe.com/app/express.
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 more than $20,000 and received more than 200 orders in 2022 through Sawyer, Stripe will send an email (titled “Action required to receive your Sawyer Tools 2022 tax form”) inviting you to create an account and log in to Stripe Express.
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 mid January 2023.
If you can’t find an email from Stripe, it’s possible that:
The email may be in your spam/junk mail folder. Please search your inbox for an email titled “Action required to receive your Sawyer Tools 2022 tax form”
Sawyer does not have your most current email address on file. Please check any other email addresses you may have used to sign up for Sawyer, or reach out to Sawyer to update your email.
The email address associated with your Sawyer account is incorrect, missing, or unable to receive mail.
Please note that if you earned enough to need a 1099 form in 2022 and do not receive an email from Stripe by mid January, you will be mailed a paper copy of your 1099 tax form.
When will I receive my 1099 tax form?
If you’ve agreed to e-delivery you should receive your 1099 tax form 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:
Starting in early January: Stripe will email you instructions on how to set up a Stripe Express account. You’ll need to create an account and agree to e-delivery (i.e., agree to receive your 1099 tax form electronically via Stripe Express) to and download your 1099 tax form.
By January 20, 2023: Confirm your tax information (e.g., name, address, and SSN or EIN) is correct via Stripe Express.
By January 31, 2023:
Your 1099 tax form will be available to download via Stripe Express.
Your 1099 tax form will be mailed to you, if you don’t receive an email from Stripe or don’t consent to e-delivery. Please allow up to 10 business days for mail delivery.
Sawyer will file your 1099 tax form with the IRS and relevant state tax authorities.
- Feb 28th, 2023 - Deadline to report 2022 tax forms to IRS (if paper filing)
- March 31, 2023- Deadline to report 2022 tax forms to IRs (if e-filing)
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 20th, 2023.
Please note: If you don’t consent to e-delivery by mid January 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 mid January 2023 and download your 1099 electronically. However, you will not be mailed a new paper copy of your 1099 tax form.
