Old Account Closed, No Email Address, How does this effect Taxes?

Hello all,

I have a question that has been troubling me for the past month or so.

I had an Amazon account (old one) that was linked to my old KDP account. This was linked with a tax number, etc. I asked for the KDP to be closed and then I closed my Amazon account. Therefore, not realising it, I cannot log into my KDP account now. My gmail to the account got hacked and I cannot access it, thus I cannot write to Amazon or KDP under that e-mail address.

Therefore, I created this account, but I am worried about entering new tax information due to my old account having. Whenever I talk to KDP or Amazon Customer Support they tell me to e-mail them under the old account. I tell them I can't due to the gmail being hacked.

Can someone help me please with this whole mess.

I am from the UK. Around March to April I always receive a tax form from the US about my tax withholding's.

I don't know if I will get one this year coming as my KDP account in closed. I cannot get any information from KDP themselves.

I need to know if I can put infromation about tax payments into my KDP new account or/and

how I can go about getting my old account reopened.

I am stuck in limbo and any information would be greatly appreciated.

Have a good new year all of you.

If you sold anything during 2017 you will get a receipt for your taxes.
That is IF you did not opt to get it by email.
Meanwhile, go back thru old bank deposits or whatever you have there to try to figure out how much you were paid during 2017.

Other than the above, about all you can do is contact Amazon's corporate headquarters and I would do so by regular mail giving them all past account information.

If you earned money from the KDP in 2017, you will get a 1042-S (I think it's called) in the mail in the spring.

You should be able to email Support at the old address: kdp-support@amazon.com

If that fails, try jeff.bezos@amazon.com (I once got a nice email from one of his staff when I vented to that address).

You can ask Support to phone you.

Surely people change email addresses all the time! My friends are forever doing it.

(Don't trust KDP to publish a print edition. Don't trust CreateSpace to publish an ebook. Each does one thing well and the other thing poorly.)

Good luck! -- NJ
