FYI - seems US 1099s are going to be late.
I got an email from Shutterstock two days ago saying that the link to download 1099s would be available on January 31.  Today (January 31) with no link, I emailed them again. Now they tell me that, because of the "generation of the format of the download link", it will be sometime in March. I'm annoyed at in "fixing" the site, the contact link doesn't work, and now in only two days, they have broken the download link.
Per my tax preparer, who is also an IRS agent, their deadline for 1099 filing is today.

ETA last email from Shutterstock, which is the third in three days, now says it will be sometime between January 1 and March 1. Still a month past the due date.

Same!  I think they put this out there knowing that there was nothing to download. Two days ago, they said by January 31. This morning's email said in March. Later today they said between now and March 1. And the initial explanation was that they couldn't generate the download link. The very last email from them today said "check again tomorrow." 
I suspect they made this page and send the notice in order to cover themselves and show that they tried to get them out by January 31 as required, but knowing that the downloads wouldn't show up, so they could blame it on a systems glitch. (And their contact link still doesn't work).

MARCH? Well that's BS as some of us are required to have our taxes FILED by March 15th.

Mine won't download.  I just get a white box that tells me to download my tax forms, but no button to actually do it.

I tried two different browsers.  Same result.

There is a system glitch. They asked me to wait 24 hours and try again. I just want mine for my records.  I just tally up all my income and report that. i dont wait for my 1099s.

The number on their 1099 never matches what I show, even though it's taken from their own monthly earnings summary; and I don't have a lot of downloads, so there shouldn't be a 14% difference. But my tax prep guy said that if I report mine and it doesn't match theirs, I could get questioned about it down the line.

It all gets thrown into an income number.  Theres no way anyone would know if anything matched any report.  It doesnt get broken down by agency.

Update: Got my husband's. I have yet to receive an email regarding mine. If I use his link and log into my account, I get the empty box.

In truth I'm not sure why I care - my accountant doesn't seem to care if we have the 1099s or not. Must be my being anal with documents showing through.

And yes, it all gets lumped into one amount like Sean said.

Edit: I've figured it out. Apparently my husband is the main person for Tortoise Productions (really? Is that why his title is VP?) and the dollar amount on the 1099 is for his earnings, my earnings and both of our earnings from Pond - or at least the amount is "close" to what I have recorded for last year. Within 5 dollars or so...
