Why did I not receive any tax forms from Acorns this year?

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.

If you did not receive a 1099 tax form this year, your Acorns account activity did not meet the minimum reporting requirements set by the IRS last year.

This means your sell activity did not meet minimum reporting requirements, you did not earn more than $10 in dividends, and you did not earn more than $600 in referral bonuses or Found Money offers that didn’t require you purchase anything.

If you have an Acorns Later account, it means you did not make a withdrawal from that account last year. Acorns Later account holders receive a 5498 form listing any contributions or rollovers made last year by May 31. The 5498 form is for your records and not required to file taxes.

If you feel you should have received a 1099 form from us, please contact our support team.
