Filing your taxes with Grow Therapy

Learn what information is needed to receive your Grow Therapy 1099 for tax purposes.

Updated over a week ago

Grow Therapy is required to collect W-9 forms from all providers on our platform. This form provides each provider's legal name, address, and taxpayer identification number (TIN) or Social Security Number (SSN).

Grow Therapy uses the information received in the W-9 forms to populate the taxpayer identification needed to complete 1099 forms. These 1099 forms will be distributed to all providers paid $600 or more during the year.

Note: W-9 requests and 1099 filings are facilitated by our partner, Wingspan.

Frequently Asked Questions

Tax Form Overview

  • What is a 1099-NEC tax form, and do I need to file one? - If you're a freelancer or contractor and you've made over $600 from a company this year, they'll send a 1099-NEC tax form to the IRS. You'll get a copy of this form for your taxes.

  • What are 1099 forms? - 1099 forms are used to report money you've made that isn't reported on a Form W-2. This could be from freelance work, side gigs, etc. These forms are sent to the IRS and sometimes to your state's tax department.

  • What is a Form W-9? - A W-9 form is used to collect tax identification information from non-employees in the U.S., such as freelancers or independent contractors. For 1099-NEC filing, the payer uses the W-9 to gather the recipient's name, address, and Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN). The form includes fields for the individual's or entity's name, Federal Tax Classification, and contact details. The W-9 is not sent to the IRS; it's for the payer's (Grow Therapy) records to complete the 1099-NEC form correctly. Wingspan helps collect this information digitally.
