Everything You Need to Know About Tax Documents
Visit our Tax Center for more information about 2022 taxes.
Will I Have Tax Documents from Stash?
You should have tax documents from Stash if:
- You received dividend payments greater than $10 from your Stash Invest accounts in 2021.
- You received more than $10 in interest on your Stash Invest account.
- You made a withdrawal from your Stash Retire IRA of $10 or more.
- You sold an investment in your Stash Invest account in 2021.
You may also generate a form 5498 on or before June 1, 2022 if you made a contribution to your retirement account during 2021. For all the 2022 tax season dates, check out this article.
The forms you’ll receive represent your account activity from the previous calendar year, or any activity completed to qualify for that year’s contributions. For more information on the different tax forms you may receive, check out this article.
You most likely won’t have tax documents if:
- You received less than $10 of interest, and/or did not sell any investments before the end of 2021.
- You have a retirement account with Stash and you did not make any withdrawals.
If you do not receive an email about tax forms and aren’t seeing any in your account, it’s because you don’t need them for this tax year.
You may be wondering:
- What if I only have a return of $0.46? It doesn’t matter how much money you have in your account – if that 46 cents came from selling an investment (also called a realized capital gain, or loss), then you’ll have forms.
- What if I lost money? Even if you sold an investment at a loss, you will also get tax forms. Essentially, if you sold an investment, you’ll have a tax form.
Where do I Find Tax Documents?

I Closed My Account, How Can I Get Tax Information?
