PeerStreet collects this information for two reasons. First, it enables us to verify your identity when you first sign up for PeerStreet. Second, it is very important we have accurate records of your SSN or Taxpayer ID Number for tax filing purposes so we can issue a Form 1099 to you for your PeerStreet investments. Providing us with an incorrect TIN will result in the IRS requiring us to withhold a portion of the distributions made to your account. Please make sure the name on your account matches exactly with the name associated with your SSN or Taxpayer ID Number. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
