Pearson will report all of your royalty income to the IRS each year, which is inclusive of payments made directly to you as well as any payments for permissions fees, indexing, manuscript preparation, photo research, etc. that are paid to a third party and recoupable against your royalty earnings. You will receive a 1099 or 1042 each January stating the amount of royalty income you earned in the previous calendar year.
Legal name changes
If you have a legal name change, Pearson must make the required updates to your payment & tax details. A request for a legal name change must be made through our support page. Please include relevant documentation to support the change. Our royalty team will refer the information to our Legal team for any change of name issues.
