This is the first one I've received from Google in eight years!

I'm all new to this, what happens if you don't receive one? I guess I just keep track of all my monthly statements for last year and submit it that when paying taxes?

njstangers, I have always just added up what I was paid by Google in the calender year and reported the it to the IRS. If they don't send a 1099 to you, then you don't send anything with your tax return.

1099's are only sent on (total) payments over $600.00.

My revenues for the year have always been well over $600, but this is the first year I have received a 1099 from Google.

I haven't gotten one for years. Not this year so far either.

hmm thanks, I agree I'm over $600 and hopefully will get one if not I can do it manually, not a problem. :) Just curious since most other companies I've dealt with have always sent me a 1099 even if it was just a few bucks over $600

If you live in the US and were PAID $600 or more by Google (not including other sources of income/revenue), Google must, by law, send you a 1099 postmakred no later than Jan. 31st.

I've gotten one every year. I'm still waiting for mine from 2011. Maybe it is in my mailbox.

I get one every year, and have already received mine.

My account is under my corporation name, I wonder if that makes a difference.

Since businesses generally file under an EIN (or like number) rather than a social security number, a business, presumably, reports the income under profits same as say web design work. Generally, the 1099 is meant for individuals, though some businesses send them regardless. Everything I do, whether Google, CafePress, etc., is under my business and I have never received a 1099 in literally 30 years.

Mine is an LLC which has been an S Corp for the past couple years.

Just got mine last night....I haven't changed it to an LLC yet so I just file it with my own taxes. :)

That'sBoBo, you may want to consider paying quarterly taxes.

azlinda: I do! But my profit was higher in 2011 than 2010, which I based my quarterly payments on, so I'm doomed to pay the tax man this April.

I'll be readjusting for 2012.

My 1099 hasn't arrived yet this year. Seems like they were earlier in previous years, hard to recall exactly though.

But I did get an email from G saying I'd be getting one and if it doesn't arrive by 2/15 I can ask to have it resent.

Got mine. Always get one from Google.
Their figure is somewhat less than my computations, but then, what do I know. I will use their number.

Chitika has NEVER sent me a 1099, although I made $1,000s with them. When I compare the checks they sent me with their stats, there is no correspondence whatsoever. I don't know why I am still with them. There is only ONE thing about them that is not screwed up - the mailing of checks. Tends to make me lazy, and not go through the hassle of moving those impressions elsewhere. I will base my figure on adding up the checks they sent me - ACTUAL income. I have no desire to spend time trying to figure out their stats from outer space.

Those who didn't get them make they have your correct address in your profile. I got an identical duplicate one this year, sent a day after the first. Anyone else get 2?

Got mine last week. Earnings from Google were nearly twice the previous year.
