Update for anyone that only got $50… I joined via the Penny Hoarder link. I did real employer direct deposits back in Spring 2019 for several months. I got $50 in May like a lot of folks. I never bothered to reach out to them. I finally went to zero out my account this week and decided I’d have a go asking for my other $50. One email and they next day they credited my account.

Has anyone gotten a 1099?

I haven’t, was also wondering if other users had…

I was thinking the same, so looked on their site and found this:
Tax Forms: As an investor in one (or both) of our funds, you will receive a Form 1099 reporting any income resulting from your investment with Aspiration. You will receive an email notifying you that your Form 1099 is available to download by February 15th.

I asked their support and after getting a very generic response, I got this:

Upon looking further into your account, the $100 promotional credit is not considered interest, and you account was not eligible to receive a 1099-INT. The promotional bonus would be considered income and we do not have a form for you to report that – I recommend discussing with a tax professional to determine how you can report that miscellaneous income.

Which is confusing because in their original response to me, they said “If you earned $10 or more in interest or other income from Aspiration in 2019” so it’s income, but not “other income”?

Doesn’t seem right, but given their issues with paying vendors, maybe they just didn’t pay their tax people or USPS to mail out the forms.

Interesting. Thanks for the info.

Went to close my account and was told “Just so you’re aware, account closures with us are permanent. Once closed, your accounts cannot be reopened (this includes reapplying).” May just keep it open with a $1 balance.

Had to contact customer service in order to get my bonus to post. They handled it within 2 days and I got the bonus.
