Complete or update tax interview

U.S. tax regulations require Amazon to collect information about your tax status under U.S. law using our short online tax interview. This is because Amazon issues payments that can be regarded as income. We must receive and validate your tax identity information before you can update existing books or publish new books in the Kindle store.

To complete the tax interview:

  1. Go to your account page.
  2. Under "My Account," click Tax Information.
  3. Click Complete Tax Information. If you're updating your tax information, click View/Provide Tax Information.

Answer all questions and enter all information requested during the interview. You may retake the interview anytime your information or circumstances change. You can check the status of your tax information anytime under the "Tax Information" section of your KDP Account. Validated tax information will show a Tax Account Status of "Completed."

  2. Clear your browser's cache and cookies, and then close your browser.
  3. Open your browser again, go to Your Account, and sign in with the email address and password combination you used to create your profile and upload your books.

If you're unsure which password you used, try resetting your password.

Merge accounts

To have your accounts merged, you need to contact us. You will need to provide the following:
  • Provide a title of one book from each KDP account and its corresponding ASIN or ISBN.
  • Have the new account with complete information.

Merging your KDP accounts will move your published books from your old KDP account to your new one. The below information will not be transferred:
  • Old account information
  • Tax interview details
  • Sales reports
  • Payment information to the new account.

Reports will no longer be accessible with the old account. We recommend downloading your reports before merging accounts.

If there are royalties pending in your old account, please verify that your name, account number, and routing number are current and match the account information on file with your financial institution. This ensures that you receive outstanding royalties.

After you gather the information we need and verify your account details, contact us. We'll move the old account and then confirm that this is done.



Close an account

You need to contact us to have your account closed. Before we can close your account, you need to unpublish available books. If there are royalties pending in your account, please verify that your name, account number, and routing number are current and match the account information on file with your financial institution. This ensures that you receive outstanding royalties.

After you unpublish your books and verify your account details, contact us to authorize the closure of your account.


Reopen an account

To reopen an account, you need to contact us. Our team will evaluate the possibility of reopening your account.


Remove or delete books from the bookshelf

You can delete books in "Draft" status from your Bookshelf. If your book was previously published and available for sale, it can't be deleted. Also, paperbacks that were assigned an ISBN can't be deleted.
