TAX FAQs 

What tax document will I receive?  

You will receive a 1099-NEC if you have earnings of $600 or more per year.  

When will I receive my 1099-NEC? 

If you consent to electronic delivery, your tax documents will be available by January 31, 2024.  

If you do not consent to electronic delivery, your tax documents will be mailed by January 31, 2024. You will not have access to electronic documents unless you update your preference. 

Does Walmart report my earnings and/or tips to the IRS? 

Yes. Walmart submits the information to the IRS if you have earnings of $600 or more per year. 

Does Walmart send me a summary of my mileage? 

No, that is not something we provide.  

Why doesn’t the name on my 1099 match the way I entered it to sign up on the Spark Driver platform? 

This is an IRS tax filing requirement. The IRS does not accept or process special characters like (é, ‘, -). Your 1099 must match the name in the IRS database or it could cause problems in the tax filing process.   

  • Examples: 
    • Name with Character: Renée Smith – IRS won’t accept 
    • Name with no Character: Renee Smith – IRS required format 

How and where can I change my tax document delivery preference? 

  • Log in to your Spark Driver profile. If you are having trouble logging in, check out Forgot username and/or password for Spark Driver™ profile.  
  • At the top right, tap the icon with your initials and select Settings from the menu. 
  • You can tap Yes to receive your tax documents electronically. 
  • If you change your preference after January 12, 2024, your new preference will take effect for your 2024 tax document. 
  • Your 2023 tax document will be available online once e-consent has been accepted.  

What is included in my 1099-NEC? 

The 1099-NEC you will receive from Walmart includes all earnings and tips from 2023. 

Why is my 1099-NEC  blank when  I try to view it on my phone?  

If you are opening your tax document on your phone and having problems seeing the information, we recommend opening your 1099-NEC on a desktop or laptop. 

How can I download my tax document?   

If you are unable to access your tax documents or log into your account using this method, you will need to contact support to receive a physical copy at the address listed on your profile.
  • Once selected, a download button will appear in the top right corner to save. 

Does Walmart offer tax advice?
