I go to this page:
http://submit.shutterstock.com/legal/taxes/external/download
Follow the steps, check the box, and click to download, but all I get is a modal popup telling me to download my tax forms, but there is nothing to download.  Is there a trick to this?

I would tell them you want hard copies instead - I received mine in the mail a couple weeks ago for both SS and BS.

The bottom of the dialog in that modal popup is a button.

Click the button and the file save dialog should come up (did for me - just tried it again today to be sure it wasn't broken). There can be some odd stuff where the check box a the bottom gets unchecked as you go to click the first red download button - try again if so as it doesn't give an error message but the download doesn't happen

For the US based photographers still not able to access your 1099s, you have the right to request assistance in obtaining your tax forms from the IRS. Here is a copy of an e-mail I just sent to Shutterstock (attempted to cc Mr Oringer as well):

"Below is a copy of my second e-mail requesting what should be automatic and simple:

This my second message to Shutterstock re: not receiving my 1099 forms for the 2015 tax year. I am unable to access the forms online still as well. Please forward my 1099s immediately. Shutterstock had a 2.14.16 deadline to make the forms available for the 2015 tax year. My next contact will include copies to the IRS (requesting that a form 4598 be issued to shutterstock) and the NY Attorney General's office."

This was sent, as was the first, through the "Contact Us" section on the website. This is another example in a growing list of slights and digs to your contributor base. Killing your contributor base through a series of a thousand nicks is not wise for business.

Submitter 77601 (that's what we are right - numbers - not people)"


Just a FYI for those unable to file your returns because of SS incompetence.

Just checked when I saw this thread and it says it is temporarily unavailable. Not encouraging considering taxes are due only a month from now. Glad I downloaded mine in February.

Am I the only one who got their 1099 in the mail as well as being able to download a copy?

Never got mine in the mail which is the reason I needed to download it.

To me, really bad when an on-line tech company first allows folks to download others tax information, then does not provide notice of a breach, and finally then blocks all access to information that they are required by US law to provide.
