1099s are issued in mid-January. AdThrive uses Track1099 to send 1099s electronically to the email address in your AdThrive dashboard.
What does the email look like?
Subject: 1099-MISC from AdThrive, LLC
From: Track1099 1099 & W-2 <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Once you click the large blue "Retrieve Your 1099-MISC" button, a new window opens up to this page:
Verify your identity by entering either the last 4 digits of your Social Security Number (SSN) or Employer Identification Number (EIN), whichever was used to fill out your W-9 in the AdThrive dashboard.
You can check for that by logging in to your dashboard and navigating to Payments > Payment Info from the menu. Click through to Page 3: Tax Forms, and click "To view the information you submitted, click here." Under "W9 Form Details," it will list which tax identification number you entered on the W-9 form.
After you're logged in, your 1099 form will load and you can choose to download or print. Nice and simple!
