IS payment has already arrived!

By the way, the sales are quite stable this month, it will not be a best month, but at least a slight upward turn.

I also got my payment

Is there any way to find out how much is deducted from taxes? Some kind of payment history?

D*mn liars, they said we would get paid on the 25th and I have my money already on the 20th. (yes kidding, but since it seems so many people will find something wrong with pretty much everything...)  ;D

And once the one month lag is over for the PP, Subs, GI and whatever else, we'll all be sailing on smoother seas.

Plus they got it right on the tax....I confess to taking the added precaution of obtaining written confirmation from support that my form was correct and that tax would not be deducted.

In my view they paid late I could have cashed in a month ago and had my money three weeks ago under the old payment system.  >:(

Now waiting to see if I can get my $5.29 before the end of this month to cash in otherwise I'll end up waiting another 7 weeks!!! for payout  >:(

I am looking forward to seeing the detailed accounting for each sale. I am tax resident in a non treaty jurisdiction but completed the paperwork - meaning that I should be taxed at 30% but only on US sales.

As it is I have I seem to have been deducted slightly less than 9% in US taxes. At first glance that should imply (I believe) that roughly only about 1/3 of my sales were US.

However I think that the iStock sales at Getty Images covered in this accounting possibly pre-date iStock being US based.

This is Feb right?  Early is relative, SS and even 123 have paid out for Feb ages ago.

I believe I had 188, but I only received 172.

Maybe it was the tax?

But I'm from the Philippines.

I think is not tax ... I also got about $ 10 less than it should in the case of a higher amount. Hmmm.

Maybe it's a Payoneer fee? I wait till tomorow and than I send a ticket for this.

I used paypal.  Got exactly to the penny what my Feb total was.

Same here, just went and checked to make sure. Gross reported on IS = PayPal $$$ Identical.

Must be something with taxes or Payoneer fees. I'd think that checking IS should show your actual pay and then you might determine if it was taken somewhere else?

Did you look here? https://secure.istockphoto.com/user_payout_report_new.php  (for the people who got less than expected)

My payout report says $321.70 but I got only $228.85 on Paypal, wrote them but no answer.

My payout was 20% less that it should have been.  I'm a US citizen with a W-9 on file so there shouldn't have been any taxes deducted.  Wrote to ask why but doubt I'll get an answer.  Hopefully there will be more info coming when they get around to publishing the accounting info.

I have more than 100 USD of the balance since February and haven't  received my money yet...
Should I worry?

The receipts for the March payments have been posted at our payout reports page. These detail any tax deductions.

I was taxed 30% on US sales only. This is what they said would happen provided I completed the tax interview properly.

It's interesting to see what percentage of sales are to the U.S. as well - about a third in my case.

Thank you all for your donations to our tax system.

Personally I think it's rather unfair to tax someone who isn't a resident or citizen and doesn't get any personal benefits from the taxes they pay.

Can you image the chaos and complications if every country did this?

But only the US companies take from you, right? And you can't get any refunds?  :-\

I'm glad you got paid. I haven't been paid yet and was owed over $200.00+. Now my balance reads $7.00!!!! Yeah, same here: No response to my inquiries.

Same here - contacted IS 10 days ago who a few days later told me to contact Getty - not a word back - the customer service issues are appalling - have no idea what is going on, can get no one to respond other than to pass the buck and meanwhile over a $100 missing from my account for a month. I think its time to pull images from IS - too much hassle for too little return.

Disgusting company. I won't pull my images out, but resentment is growing. I'm sure their salaried managers are getting paid weekly. But they can sit on our money for months.
