What is 1099 e-Delivery?

1099 e-Delivery allows you to receive your 1099 electronically via a link sent to your email. You will be required to complete the e-Delivery consent before you can receive a 1099 electronically. You will not receive a copy by mail if you opt in to e-Delivery.

Why do I have to consent to receive my 1099 electronically?

By default, tax documents are physically mailed. If you would like to receive your 1099 electronically instead, your consent is required.

Do I have to utilize e-Delivery to receive my 1099?

No. e-Delivery of your tax documents is optional. If you do not opt-in for e-Delivery, your 1099 will be mailed to you.

How do I sign up for e-Delivery?

Eligible Pet Caregivers will receive an email regarding e-Delivery consent. Follow the link in the email and you will be taken to a page where you may opt in or opt out of e-Delivery. If you opt out of e-Delivery, your 1099 will be physically mailed.

When can I view my 1099 for the year 2020?

1099s are required to be delivered electronically or postmarked by January 31st, 2021. You will not receive a 1099 if you are ineligible.

Why don’t I have the option to receive my 1099 electronically?

If you are eligible to receive a 1099, you are eligible to opt-in for e-Delivery. If you are not eligible to receive a 1099, you will not be able to opt-in for e-Delivery.

Note: Once you tap “Okay,” you will receive an email with a link to your 1099. The link to access your 1099 expires after 10 minutes. If your link has expired, repeat the steps above to receive a new link. 

What do I do if my 1099 link has expired?

To request a new link from the Walker App:

  • From the home screen, tap “Earnings” →
  • Tap "View past payments" →
  • Tap “Email me my 2020 1099” →
  • Tap “Okay”

I do not consent to e-Delivery. How will I receive my 1099?

Your 1099 will be physically mailed to the address associated with your Stripe account. Your 1099 is required to be postmarked by January 31, 2021.

I signed up for e-Delivery but changed my mind; what do I do?

If you opted in to receive your 1099 electronically, but would now like it to be mailed to your physical address, please email woofsupport@wagwalking.com with the subject line “Revoke 1099 e-Delivery Consent.”

Can I request a 1099 be sent if I made less than $600?
