Do I have to pay taxes on money I make through my Acorns account?

Eligible investors may need to pay taxes on realized capital gains, dividends received, and other transactions occurring in your Acorns accounts, as you would with any investment account. If you are eligible, you should have received a link to your 1099 tax form from us via email to the email address associated with your Acorns account. Please consult your CPA or tax professional for advice on filing your personal taxes, or visit the IRS website.

If you have not received a 1099 tax form from us, your investment activity did not meet the minimum threshold for reporting and you should not expect this form from Acorns this year.
