Reduce Friction with Hyperwallet’s Tax Services
Hyperwallet’s Tax Services make it easier for you to improve your overall tax compliance with the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) by simplifying taxpayer verification and tax reporting for year-end earnings. You can reduce your administrative burden, and that of your payees, with a self-service payee verification tool, tailored earning reports, and automated 1099 form distribution.
How Tax Services Work
When Hyperwallet’s Tax Services is implemented, the service automatically collects your payees’ tax information to generate the W-9 forms. The verification of the taxpayer identification number (TIN) is performed in real-time against the IRS database before payees can proceed with their payment transfer. Hyperwallet’s Tax Services also separate US citizens from foreign persons (international workers) by collecting a W-8BEN. This form helps you determine the appropriate tax rate and reduce your risks of IRS penalties.
If you’re looking for a hands-off approach, you can take advantage of Hyperwallet’s integrated tax reporting service, which can significantly reduce the cost of distributing 1099 tax forms thanks to integrated e-distribution within your payees’ Pay Portal. The tax data is processed annually to create the 1099 forms which are then filed automatically with the IRS. Payees receive a notification by email that their form is ready, allowing them to print or download their annual tax document directly from their Pay Portal.
Offer Tax Services to Your Payees
If your Hyperwallet payout solution features a Pay Portal Payee Experience, you can easily implement the Tax Services feature. Once configured, the Taxpayer Identification icon will appear on the action bar within the Pay Portal web and mobile interfaces.
Tax Services are currently not supported in an Embedded Payee Experience.
