Do I have to pay taxes on my Stash Invest investments?

Stash Invest accounts are taxable brokerage accounts. You are required by the IRS to report income earned from capital gains and other applicable distributions.

Each year, Stash will send you a tax statement so that you can file your taxes appropriately.

In general, if you hold your investments for longer than a year, you will avoid paying short-term capital gains on taxes.
