2015 1099s? (was W2s) oops
« on: February 01, 2016, 06:29:51 am »
Has anybody received their 2015 W2 forms yet?  I thought they were supposed to be out by Jan 31 but I still haven't received mine.

    I haven't received one, either by mail or electronically. Smashwords sent me an email with a link to download it, but nothing from Zon, B&N, or D2D.
    This post remains on KBoards over my objections.

    Nothing as yet. I'm guessing we'll see them in the mail this week since the 31st was on Sunday.

    W2s (employer) or 1099s (book sales)?

    My employer had my W2s out over a week ago.  Amazon's 1099s are up if you opted in for getting them online (instructions to find were posted here), except for CreateSpace (which is mailed).

    Kobo, I believe, doesn't do them.  No idea on the rest since I didn't sell enough from Nook or B&N for them to even send a payment :-P

    I've had an e-mailed 1099 from D2D, but nothing from Amazon yet.

    Amma Natsu, you solved my problem. Thank you! I had chosen to go paperless, but I guess I expected an email saying they were available. Many thanks for the link.

    The law requires that 1099s must be filed to recipients by 1/31. Not that you would receive them by 1/31. If you are getting paper 1099s, they had to be mailed by the 31st, but you may not get them for a week or so.

    Thanks Anma Natsu (and Rachel Rice in the referenced post). It's quite a twisty puzzle they make you solve to find them, complete with secret password and decoder ring. Ok, that last part about the ring is not true, but maybe next year...

    I got an email from Amazon inviting me to download 1099s just a few minutes ago. Donna's post must've got them going.  ;D

    The law requires that 1099s must be filed to recipients by 1/31. Not that you would receive them by 1/31. If you are getting paper 1099s, they had to be mailed by the 31st, but you may not get them for a week or so.

    Since the 31st fell on Sunday, the IRS okays mailing the next business day which is today (February 1) so they'll be a lot of 1099s mailed out today. I used to work in accounts payable and we wouldn't mail until the day of the deadline. So you're right, it might still be a few days to a week before peeps get the paper version in the mail in the U.S.
