SSN on form 8949

A common question we hear from our users is “Can we generate SSN number on your 8949 document?”

It’s an interesting question. “Does our Social Security Number or Tax Identification Number gets printed automatically on 8949 document along with our name?” or “Can I generate 8949 document with my Social Security Number or Tax Identification Number on it?”

Short answer is No!

Don’t take us wrong! It’s a NO because we respect your privacy!

Why is it not populated?

For any information to be auto populated on the forms we provide, we would need to seek it from you and store it on our database. Given the importance of a Social Security Number (SSN) or Tax Identification Number (TIN), we decided not to ask for it and raise any privacy concerns.

We generate the document using the name you provide us while signing up and leave the SSN column blank so that you can fill it yourself before handing it to your accountant or tax preparer.

If you have any questions, please let us know via comments or ping on using chatbox on the website.
