I'm super frustrated by this for many reasons. Mostly because I made the bulk of my money at ARE. I know the erotica market isn't booming like when I started back in 2012 but ARE was a place where folks were willing to pay good money for gay billionaire gangbangs and that was a niche that needed filling. So despite the fact that I did receive emails regarding their seasonal promotions, I NEVER got the email saying they were closing. And I haven't gotten the most recent email about the tax situation. I never had a chance to take the $0.10 on the dollar offer from them. I'm also concerned that my 1099 isn't coming since they didn't even freaking email me. Luckily I didn't have time to publish much at the end of the year but I'd still like to see that $75.
I guess I have some questions...
1. How can I join this class action lawsuit? I want in. I never took the settlement.
2. If I never get my 1099 and I didn't take the settlement, that means I report $0.00 in profits from the last quarter, right? Like others have mentioned, they better not suggest they paid me for the last quarter when they didn't. And since this payment would usually go out middle of Feb anyway, I'm counting all of it on my 2017 taxes anyway.
