Yes, we'll provide you with the proper tax forms! There are several different kinds of tax forms you may receive from us, depending on how you use Acorns.
For Acorns Invest & Early accounts
If you have an Invest and/or Early account and any of the following apply to you, you'll receive your 1099-DIV/B form by February 21, 2024:
- You received more than $10 in dividends in the previous year
- You withdrew from your Acorns Invest or Early account or sold some of your investments for more than $20 last year
- There were rebalances in one or more of your Acorns investing accounts
You can learn more about the 1099-DIV/B form here.
For Acorns Later accounts
If you're a Later investor and you made a withdrawal from your Later account last year, we'll email you a 1099-R form that lists those withdrawals by February 1, 2024.
You can learn more about the 1099-R form here.
If you made a contribution or rollover to your Later account during the tax year, you’ll get a 5498 form by May 31, 2024. You won’t need to use this form when you file your taxes. It’s just for your records.
You can learn more about the 5498 form here.
For Acorns Checking & Emergency Fund accounts
If you have a Mighty Oak Checking and/or Emergency Fund account and you earned more than $10 in interest last year, you may be taxed.
Currently, only our Mighty Oak accounts earn interest — you can learn more about our Mighty Oak debit card here. You'll need to have money saved in your Mighty Oak Checking and/or Emergency Fund account in order to earn interest — any balance over $0 will earn interest.
If you did earn more than $10 in interest last year, we'll email you a link to download your 1099-INT form by February 1, 2024. You can learn more about the 1099-INT form here.
For Referrals & Earn rewards
If you earned more than $600 in referral bonuses or through Acorns Earn offers that didn’t require you to buy something, you'll receive a 1099-MISC form by January 31, 2024.
You can learn more about the 1099-MISC form here.

What do I do with the form I received from Acorns?
If you received a form, you may need to let the IRS know about the money you earned the previous year through Acorns when you file your taxes.
Your tax situation is unique, you may want to talk to a tax professional or visit www.irs.gov to figure out what applies to you and what you may need to report.
