Most players should have received them by now, but if you haven’t received yours, there is another way to retrieve yours — online at the DraftKings Document Center. You can log on to your account to find your form today.
Check out the steps below to do just that.
Steps to Retrieve Your DraftKings 1099 Forms
The first thing you will want to do is head on over to DraftKings.com and log-in to your account. Once you are logged in, click on your name in the top right and go to “My Account” from the drop-down box.
Once on this page, you see a variety of account related items. Click on “Document Center” which you will see on the left hand side of this page.
When you are on the Document Center page, you should see a 1099 form — in a PDF file — under “Tax Items.” This is what that page looks like. There is nothing under this account because it did not hit the $600 threshold during the 2015 calendar year (maybe next year).
From there, you can use the information on the 1099 to complete your taxes or print the form for your records or submission.
What to do if Your 1099 is Not Available?
So you haven’t received your DraftKings tax form in the mail yet AND there is no tax form available in the Document Center. What do you do? First of all, you may not have hit the $600 threshold in profits last year to require a 1099 form be sent to you.
If you think that you met the $600 in net profits during the year at DraftKings and have not yet received your form, you should contact customer service at firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm that you are not receiving a form.
Players have until April 18th to submit your tax return for 2015. Remember, even if you showed a small profit for the year (under $600) on DraftKings, you still need to report your income on your 1040 federal income tax return. If you have already submitted your income tax return for 2015 and did not claim DFS income, you may need to file a return.
