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:
You'll need to verify your identity by entering either the last 4 digits of your Social Security Number (SSN) or Employer Identification Number (EIN), whichever you used to fill out your W-9 in the AdThrive dashboard.
You can check on that by logging in to your dashboard and clicking on Payments and then Payment Info in the left sidebar. Click through to page three: Tax Forms, and click where it says "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 log in, your 1099 form will load and you can choose to download or print. Nice and simple!
