Are they sending when you have over $600 earned per year?
I don't know if any one has answered you yet but in case they didn't...the answer is yes they are sending them even if you haven't made $600. Good ol Fotolia sent me one for my big payout of $54.00....lol . Worst earning site ever and of course because of recent activities there will no longer be a site for me.

You are right, I got two today and definitively I earned less on FT. I actually like to have it reported to IRS. It will be easy to have proof for my statements.

I got the following:


I think that's all of them.
Ditto. But who knows. There may be more?

Based on last year, that should be it.

...I thought "SS SPV, LLC" might be BigStock, but the amount shown is only enough to barely cover the last 3 months of the year. Huh?...

I'm guessing that this is because BigStock was still independent BigStock for part of the year, before they were acquired by SS. Which I suppose explains the company name SS SPV LLC. So the 1099 is technically issued by SS, and we're probably not getting separate 1099s for the old BigStock.

I guess I'm just going to let my accountant know that the 1099 is for SS SPV LLC which was once BigStock, and he will probably subtract that amount from the total year BigStock earnings. So for example if I earned $1200 for the entire year at BigStock and got a 1099 for $300, I'd report earnings as $300 from SS SPV LLC and $900 from BigStockPhoto.

I just got them all, I think.  DT, SS, SS SPV LLC, FOT, and I already had BigStock.  So it looks like as soon as I can get organized it's time to go to the accountant.

Thanks everyone for posting which sites to expect 1099s from. :)

Mike, you make a good point about the SS SPV LLC and BigStock ones both being for BigStock sales.  Weird thing is when I add them it totals more than my total income from BigStock by several hundred dollars.   ???

I only got two: FT and SS. I guess I should get one more from DT and that's it.

Contacted DT's support and they said form is sent only if you got $599 or above.

I guess FT should not sent it for just two payments of $50 :-)

Anyway, it looks I should not expect any more forms this year.

sorry to be so uninformed, I got out of the stock game for now, so not sure how to deal with this. I'm not a US resident: I thought we already pay 30% US taxes to all the sales coming from US, so do I need to do anything with this 1042-S document, which I received a couple of days ago?

I got one from Corbis for Veer (in addition to the ones mentioned above)

I got one from DP this past week in addition to many that others have mentioned.  I don't think I got one from DT so I need to look into that.

Exact same situation here.  Got one from DP, which surprised me.  The low end sites don't usually send them.  I don't think I got one from DP last year, although maybe I wasn't on for long enough in 2011 to make enough to qualify.    Still nothing from DT.

Took me a little while to realize that this is a thread mostly from 2010 so much of the data may be out of date.  SS, FT, VE, and DP have sent me 1099s.

The 1099's I've received so far are pretty much in line with what's been mentioned.  Interesting to note that I've never gotten one from iStock.  Is that because they're located in Canada?  I didn't see iStock mentioned in any of the earlier posts.

I got mine from DT.

Got one from DP today.

So, does anyone know what to do about these 1042-S forms? :/

Mine was sent from "SS SPV LLC", which I guess is BigStock, but I've already signed the W-8BEN and it has been approved, so 30% is withheld... not sure what to do with this and why they sent it.
