Important information regarding 2017 1099-MISC forms RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Microsoft has learned that calendar year 2017 1099-MISC forms produced based on payments for sales activity in Microsoft’s marketplaces and/or advertising revenue contain incorrect amounts.  The incorrect amounts overstate actual payments by 100x.  Microsoft sincerely regrets this error and the inconvenience it may cause.  Microsoft is working to address the error and is arranging for corrected forms to be issued as soon as possible for use in tax filings.


    If you have received a 1099-MISC form by mail that reflects an incorrect overstated amount or amounts, you should ignore this form and dispose of it.  A corrected form will be subsequently provided to you, again by mail.  This corrected form will contain the notice CORRECTED FORM – DISREGARD ALL OTHERS.  You will also be able to access the corrected form electronically via your Dev Center account.
