Get ready for a fear-inducing thought: Tax time is never more than 365 days away.
Wait, don’t go! That’s no reason to be alarmed. Dropbox Sign is here to help make it easy to prepare and complete tax documents online with ease at any point in the year. With Dropbox Sign’s easy-to-implement API, you’ll have the power to effortlessly disperse tax paperwork across departments, autofill information into relevant documents, and store all records of your tax paperwork securely.
Let’s take a look at a couple Dropbox Sign customers who have used our API to ease the burden of tax paperwork (both for themselves and for their users).
1. Stack Exchange easily disperses quarterly employee stock option grants online.
Stack Exchange is a popular question and answer site in the developer community. The team that maintains the site consists of over 200 employees, all of whom receive employee stock option grants that need to be signed once a quarter.
Getting employees to fill out these documents reliably proved to be difficult and frustrating. Employees would often send back documents in odd formats, print the documents but then forget to scan them back, and mistakenly enter incorrect information. That’s where Dropbox Sign’s API entered the picture! Stack Exchange built a Dropbox Sign API integration that automated the stock option grant flow.
Now they can easily send stock option grant paperwork to their employees online. What’s more, they’re able to autofill information into the forms so their employees don’t have to.
Once the documents are signed and reviewed by the employee (online), the completed documents are automatically saved to Stack Exchange’s systems.
2. Instacart gets contractors set up with W-9s during their online onboarding flow.
Instacart is a popular on-demand grocery delivery service. The success of their platform requires that they have a steady stream of great personal shoppers to shop for their clients.
Early on in their development, they integrated the Dropbox Sign API to create an online onboarding flow for contractors. This allowed their new shoppers to easily complete the necessary W-9 tax form online. No tax forms ever needed to be printed or faxed during the application flow, making it super simple to complete the process.
It was so successful that Instacart’s online onboarding allowed them to scale their hiring. In fact, it’s what allowed them to become the sizable company they are today! New contractors have an easy time of filling out required tax forms and a great experience doing so. And as Instacart is able to autofill much of the information into these forms, they don’t have to worry about receiving inaccurate data.
