API version 2020-08-27 is generally available

We’ve made several updates focusing on attribute cleanup and added functionality in the latest version of the Stripe API. Highlights include:

  • Billing: tax_percent has been replaced with the new tax rates API so you can better represent tax rates on invoices and in reporting. View the migration guide.
  • Accounts/Persons/Capabilities API: We’ve added additional error codes to clarify the process for Connect platforms with Custom accounts using webhooks and the API to handle verification.
  • Subscription schedules: phases.plans has been renamed to phases.items. This applies for the subscription schedule object as well as create and update requests.
  • Expand functionality: Use object expansion to view sources and tax_ids on Customer objects in addition to tiers on a plan object.

Read the complete changelog, and upgrade to the latest version from the Stripe Dashboard.
