TaxBandits allows you to download form copies with masked TINs from the Distribution Center. This adds an extra level of security for the recipient.

Please note that the steps below are applicable to all forms. 

Follow these instructions to mask TINs in form copies: 

  • Sign in to your TaxBandits account.
  • From the dashboard, click Distribution Center.
  • Click 1099/W-2/1098/5498 Forms under Print Forms.

  • Select the Tax year, Business Name, and Form type(1099 form series). Click the View Forms button, and all the recipients under the business will be displayed.

  • Select the recipients for whom you need to download copies and click Download Forms.

  • Click Download Forms with Masked TIN to mask the TINs in the downloaded copy. You can either Download it as a ZIP folder or Download it as a consolidated PDF.

  • Once you download the PDF copies, you can print them and send them to the recipients. The TINs in the print copies would be replaced with Xs, reducing the risk of identity theft.
