Thread: Amazon Payments requires SSN for all US accounts

  1. #1

    Exclamation Amazon Payments requires SSN for all US accounts

    Wanted to give you a heads-up (if you've not already heard) that Amazon Payments (which is the Amazon legal entity that handles payments for Mechanical Turk Workers and Requesters) will require US based account holders provide SSNs by the end of the year. They are doing this because of a new IRS regulation (http://www.irs.gov/govt/fslg/article...226894,00.html) which requires Amazon Payments to file Form 1099-K to for any Worker that has over $20,000 in earnings.

    We know many of you have already provided your SSN through the Mechanical Turk UI. Amazon Payments and Mturk are separate legal entities and we do not share this information. We are sorry that it is an inconvenience to enter your information twice.

    To provide your SSN, and to ensure that the name and address on file are complete and accurate, visit www.amazonpayments.com. You will be guided through a short process to provide your SSN.
