Find your end-of-year tax documents in your AdSense account

If you are having trouble finding the end-of-year tax documents for your AdSense or YouTube earnings, don't panic! If Google issued you a 1099-MISC, 1099-NEC, or 1042 form, you can find that in your AdSense account.

For most of the United States, income taxes are due April 18. But even if your taxes aren't imminently due, you will want to have an official record of your total earnings and any taxes withheld last year. 

Note that if you opted in to "go paperless", Google would not have mailed you a copy. In that case the only copy is in your account.

AdSense also offers contact forms if you need a new paper copy of the form, you need to revise the form or dispute the form.

The forms are sent by and list XXVI Holdings Inc as the payer name, not "Google", "AdSense", or "YouTube".  

Watch a short overview. 

When does Google provide an end-of-year tax form?

Google only provides end-of-year tax forms (and submits information to the IRS) if required by US law.

If you submitted US tax form W-9

Google will issue a form 1099 if: 

  • You submitted form W-9 (or are presumed to be a US person)
  • You are not an exempt recipient
  • You were paid at least $600 in the calendar tax year OR you had taxes withheld
Note that YouTube earnings and other AdSense earnings count separately towards the $600 minimum.

That means you may be issued two separate 1099 forms if you were paid more than $600 in 2022 for both YouTube and AdSense.
  • 1099-MISC for YouTube Royalties
  • 1099-NEC for AdSense Non-employee Compensation
You should have received an email notice when your tax forms became available in the last week of January.

If you submitted US tax form W-8BEN

Google will issue a form 1042-S if: 
  • You submitted a form W-8 (or are presumed to be a non-US person)
  • You received US source income
