Why is Medium asking for my US taxpayer information?

Medium must issue a 1099-MISC tax form to US taxpayers who earn through the Medium Partner Program, in order to comply with US law.

In order to complete the 1099-MISC tax form and then send copies both to you and to the IRS, we will first need to collect your taxpayer information through a W-9 form.

See our FAQ answer “Filling out the W-9 tax form (for US taxpayers)” for further details on how to submit your taxpayer information.

Note: The above answer applies for payments issued between 1/1/2019 - 12/31/2019. We will communicate any updates for tax year 2020 by Jan. 1, 2020.

Note: We are not able to give advice on how or when you should file your taxes. We recommend that you contact a tax professional for any questions or recommendations.
