What’s a 1099-MISC form?

This is provided for informational purposes only. Acorns does not provide tax or legal advice. You should consult with a tax or legal professional to address your particular situation.

The 1099-MISC form lists money not earned through an employer, like when you get a bonus for referring friends to Acorns or earn an Earn Rewards offer that doesn’t require you purchase something. (Earn Rewards you earn as a result of purchasing a good or service may be considered a rebate for tax purposes, meaning you may not receive a 1099 for that money from Acorns.) You may not receive a 1099-MISC form if your total earnings through Acorns do not exceed $600. 

To see if you received a 1099-MISC form for the previous year, log in here using your computer or a mobile browser and select “Tax Reports” from the “Statements” dropdown menu. (1099s are currently only accessible through the web app.)

*To see the latest dates by which you can expect to receive your 1099-MISC form (if you qualify for one), please review our tax schedule here: https://app.acorns.com/documents/core/taxreports.
