1099 form guidelines

Givebutter issues 1099s in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. If you are subject to receiving a 1099, you will receive it in February following the close of the previous fiscal tax year.

For fiscal year 2022, anyone who received at least 200 transactions through Givebutter AND their total amount was $20,000 or greater will receive a 1099 from Stripe, our payout partner.

👉 Note: Some states may have a lower reporting threshold. Please consult with your CPA or accountant regarding your specific situation.

As a rule of thumb, donations are tax-deductible if the campaign's beneficiary has nonprofit status with the IRS. Givebutter defines the “beneficiary” as the final recipient of any funds raised.

You can read more about 1099 forms on the IRS website. We're unable to give specific tax advice and always recommend consulting a tax professional regarding current tax regulations. 😊

My 1099 says it's for an individual, but our organization is a business or nonprofit

You will need to request an account type change from Stripe. Once that is completed, you can request an updated 1099 from Givebutter.

To change your account type with Stripe, you will need your Stripe account ID, which can be found in your Stripe Express dashboard. Then you can reach out to Stripe Support to ask that your Stripe entity type be changed from Individual to Nonprofit or Business, whichever applies in your situation (see sample email below that you can copy, paste, and send).

Sample email

Dear Stripe Support,

Our Stripe Express account, number [replace with your account number]
is incorrectly classified as an Individual entity. Please reclassify
us as a [choose one: Nonprofit/Business] entity so we can be filed accurately
for our 1099.
I understand I’m an Express Account holder.
Because of this, Givebutter is not able to change my account type.


Receipts for taxes

If you are a donor and need a receipt or end-of-year giving statement for tax purposes, please reach out to the organization you donated to.
