When will Rakuten Advertising send me a Form 1099?

Rakuten Advertising sends 1099-K forms to eligible publishers by the end of January. If Rakuten Advertising paid you $20,000 or more, based on 200 or more transactions (referred sales) from your account, you will receive a 1099-K; this holds for all legal entities including corporations, limited companies, and limited liability companies.

Please note: Rakuten Advertising does not send 1099-MISC forms to publishers.

If you have questions on whether you need to include your Rakuten Advertising earnings in your tax filing with the IRS, please speak with your accounting team.

You can determine your Rakuten Advertising earnings for the year by reviewing your dashboard payment history for last year.

Payment history is found in the Payment Info section of the publisher dashboard under My Account. In addition, please be sure to sum the payment histories of each of your separate accounts and marketing channels—you can switch between your marketing channels using the gray drop-down arrow in the upper-right corner of the dashboard.

If you have further questions about your form 1099, please contact Customer Support
