1099s are issued mid-January each year.
You are responsible for taking care of any tax payments since different states and countries have different tax requirements. We are unable to provide tax advice, but you can find the answers to some helpful FAQs on the IRS website.
The email address and mailing address listed in your 1099 are pulled directly from the information entered in your AdThrive dashboard.
Not everyone will receive a 1099. We will not issue you a 1099 if you are listed as an S-Corp or C-Corp, if you receive payments via PayPal, or if you earned less than $600. This article can help you figure out if you should expect a 1099.
S-Corp / C-Corp
The IRS doesn’t require 1099s for S-Corporations or C-Corporations, but if you need a way to validate earnings, you can confirm the total amounts you received from AdThrive in the previous year by logging in to your dashboard and selecting the Payments tab. From there, you can even export your entire payment history to Excel.
Paypal has their own tax form reporting system and is a separate section of the U.S. tax code, so if you have chosen to be paid via PayPal during any point that you’ve been working with AdThrive, you will not receive a 1099 from AdThrive for those earnings.
Can I receive my 1099 by mail?
All 1099s will be issued electronically. If you chose not to accept an electronic 1099, your 1099 will be mailed to the current address listed in your AdThrive dashboard. An electronic 1099 means everything is easily accessible and recorded for you digitally, so that’s what we recommend!
U.S. citizens living outside of the U.S.
If you are a U.S. citizen living abroad (definitions are outlined here), you should still fill out a W-9 and report your earnings to the IRS.
