Amazon and tax forms... Did you get yours yet?
« on: January 30, 2018, 03:12:01 AM »
I searched for 1099 and didnt see an answer, so asking in a new thread.

Did you folks receive 1099s from Amazon yet?  This is the first year I received royalties, so I am getting antsy.  My CPA is super busy and 1/31 was the only appointment I could get. 

I got my ACX/Audible 1099, but KDP is not available yet.

Mine was available to download a couple of days ago. Go to your account and click your name, tax information, view or change tax info, and you'll see a box to download last year's form.

Huh. I got my Amazon 1099 (it's not just KDP; it includes CreateSpace and Amazon Associates) days ago, ACX just yesterday.

Online, in both cases. Google and Draft2Digital have also weighed in, but I haven't seen anything from Lulu, which also sends me regular but increasingly smaller deposits. TurboTax will let me know if there are others, I trust.

Got mine in the mail yesterday. I don't like downloading this stuff, would rather they mail it to me.

I prefer the mail too, and Amazon has been very reliable on that score. As has Smashwords.

I don't miss the days of the multiple Amazon 1099s! That was madness.
