I read that IZEA had filed for an extension in sending out W2’s to customers of their services and I am waiting for when my W2 will arrive so that I can schedule and file my taxes. This will be the first year that I wouldn’t have filed my taxes in February, I dislike filing in March or early April due to the sheer amount of people and the delay on the return is usually a little longer if you file later in the year. I am hoping IZEA will get the W2’s to me be the first week of March latest, though I know that IZEA outsourced their W2 system to another company so they aren’t the ones actually processing them.
Because IZEA reports W2 earnings from themselves total rather than from one specific company (IE you don’t get a W2 from SocialSpark and another from PayPerPost) they should have a single “payment” system where any earnings from any of the services they provide pool into one account that can be withdrawn when it reaches $50. They should not require you to reach $50 in each of their services before you can reach payout and honestly, this delays me from reaching and earning money with Sponzai where I have been stuck at the $40 earning for about 3 months, not getting any new offers and yet unable to cash out with my earnings in limbo.
