1099s will be issued mid-January.
How do I access my 1099?
We will send 1099s via the email you added to your AdThrive dashboard. Click here for steps on what to expect and how to access.
What is my TIN, SSN, or EIN?
TIN stands for Tax Identification Number. That’s either your Social Security Number (SSN) or Employer Identification Number (EIN), depending on how you filled out your W9 form in your AdThrive dashboard.
Can I receive my 1099 by mail?
All 1099s will be issued electronically. If you choose not to accept an electronic 1099 by January 25, 2019, your 1099 will be mailed to the current address listed in your dashboard by default. We recommend avoiding this method if possible to ensure everything is easily accessible and recorded digitally for you.
What do I do if my 1099 has an old address on it?
The information on your 1099 is pulled directly from what you submitted in your AdThrive dashboard before January 1, 2019.
The good news is the IRS looks at your Tax ID and total amount paid on your 1099, rather than matching the address, so the address listed shouldn't cause any issues.
What if my 1099 amount doesn’t look correct?
Your 1099 from AdThrive should match the payments you received in 2018. Because we pay on a net-45 schedule, those payments will be offset from each month’s earnings. For example, November 2018 and December 2018 earnings are not included, because those pay out in January 2019 and February 2019.
You can confirm the total amounts you received from AdThrive in 2018 by logging in to your dashboard and selecting the Payments tab. From there, you can even export your entire payment history to Excel to simplify your record keeping!
Why did I receive two different 1099’s?
If you submitted another W9 at any point in 2018 (for example, if you rebranded or changed business structure), you’ll receive separate 1099s for payments before and after the new W9 was submitted.
For example, if you formed an LLC and submitted a new W9 to update your tax information on May 1, you’ll receive one 1099 for payments made before May 1, and another 1099 for payments made after May 1.
I have multiple sites with AdThrive. Will I receive 1099s for each site?
Not necessarily; this is based on your tax ID -- if you use the same tax ID for multiple sites, you will only get one form.
I used AdThrive Velocity for my hosting in 2018. How should I file that expense?
Your 1099 form is based on our payments to you which already have your Velocity payments deducted, so it's actually a net amount that is included on that form. This means that you shouldn't deduct or report your Velocity expenses separately (doing so would be a double deduction), and you should be fine to go ahead and file your taxes based on the 1099 net amount only.
