The response of the API request will return the Draft PDF for review purpose. This method can be used to retrieve PDF for a single record/form.

The PDF will be returned in the response for the Forms that are not yet Transmitted in TaxBandits.

This method will only provide the Copy A of the Form 1099 and it will have a watermark "For Review only" on it.

How does it work?

  1. The first step is to 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 how to integrate with the subsequent requests.

  2. The second step is to call the Create endpoint Form1099NECCorrection/Create to create a return in TaxBandits. Store the RecordId of the 1099 form that is generated by TaxBandits and returned in the Response

  3. Next, call the [POST] Form1099NECCorrection/RequestDraftPdfUrl endpoint. You will need to supply the following parameters:

    • Access Token in the header as Bearer Token (Generated using TaxBandits OAuth authentication API)

    • Form reference (RecordId) - Specify the RecordId for the form you need the Draft PDF form. If you do not have the RecordId, then you request the PDF using the following parameters

      • Business Reference - Use the business reference PayerRef or Businessid or TIN
      • Recipient Reference - Use the recipient reference PayeeRef or RecipientId or TIN
      • Tax Year - Tax year of the form you are requesting the PDF for.

PDF Security

The PDFs contain PII (Personally Identifiable Information) data of the recipients. To make sure that the PII data involved is completely secured, TaxBandits has added additional security to the form PDFs.

The PDF links you get in the Response are encrypted, and you will have to decrypt them before downloading.
