It is that time of the year again, tax season and Google began sending out 1099s to their publishers. But some publishers are reporting that the earnings stated on the 1099s differ from the actual earnings.
A publisher in a WebmasterWorld thread said the 1099 only showed earnings of 12% of what he actually earned with Google in 2008. While a Google AdSense Help thread has another publisher saying his 1099 shows higher earnings then what he actually earned with Google AdSense in 2008.
So what does one do?
(1) Speak to your accountant (2) I would inform Google of the issue through the contact us form in the AdSense console. (3) Make sure the numbers are indeed incorrect
