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."

Merge accounts

To have your accounts merged, you need to contact us. You will need to:
  • Ensure to write from the email address associated with KDP account you want to merge to another account.
  • Provide a title of one book from each KDP account and its corresponding ASIN or ISBN.
  • Have live titles in both account.
  • Remove any Ads promoting your KDP titles and create new Ads from your new account.
  • Ensure your account information is updated to pay any outstanding royalties. Learn more about updating bank details.
Note: We cannot move specific titles/draft titles from one account to another.

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
  • Active Ads running for your title published in old account
  • A+ Content. You can replicate your projects on the new account.

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

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.
