If the business operates under multiple DBA names or Trade Names other than the name registered with the IRS, you can add them to the business using the AddDBA endpoint. This will allow the business/payer to request W-9, send transactions, and distribute 1099s to the recipients under the DBA name instead of the legal name.

Here’s how the Business endpoint can be used:

  • Call the Auth method to get the access token. This access token must be supplied in the request header as the ‘Bearer‘ token. Refer to OAuth 2.0 Authentication for more information on JWT authentication and to understand how to integrate with subsequent requests.

  • Before adding the DBA to a Business, a Business needs to be created in TaxBandits. Use the Business Create endpoint to create a Business.

  • Once the business is created, you can add multiple DBAs to the business using the AddDBA endpoint with any of the following Business References

    • BusinessId or
    • PayerRef or
    • TIN of the Business.
  • If any information needs to be updated for the DBA, use the UpdateDBA method.

  • The DeleteDBA method can be used to delete a particular DBA added to the business.

  • Use the ListDBA to list all the DBA names added against a particular business.
