Last year, I already ran into 1099 issues with Gengo. This year it happened again.
Gengo says translators should contact Support if they don't see their 1099 at the end of February, and silly me, without keeping track of the amount I made in 2019, reached out to Support on Feb 29th regarding the missing 1099 form. It went well enough, the rep told me that he checked my records and saw that I made less than $600 in 2019, therefore I wouldn't receive a 1099. I made a calculation to confirm it, and I thought that the problem was solved.
Then I finished up all my taxes and got them submitted. Today, March 11th, I got Gengo's 1099 in the mail, with the wrong amount on it, $615.89. Not to mention that they got my first name wrong and left out part of my first name as if it was a middle name.
So now, thinking about I might have to redo my taxes, with a late 1099, with the wrong amount on it, makes me want to slap someone. After this ordeal is wrapped up, I'm done with Gengo. This type of shit incidents are simply not worth making some pocket money.
