Required tax information
You will be required to enter your tax information when completing your account. If your account was initially set as a no-profit account, you can opt in to Make a Profit at any time by providing your tax information and accepting our terms of service.
We use the tax information provided to verify your account and affiliated transactions with our payment processor, Stripe. In some cases, Stripe may request a full SSN/SIN from individuals or valid photo ID to verify your account. Where this is the case you may see more fields in the Tax area than what is shown below.
Often, troubles verifying an account stem from an entry error of your legal name or personal information. Ensure your information is correct before submitting to avoid additional verification steps on your account. If you have any questions regarding this page, please feel free to reach out to our Customer Success team for assistance.
Warning! Payouts cannot be deposited if tax information has not been submitted or is missing from your account.
