Action Required for US-based Artists

Dear Artists,

If you are an artist based in the United States and have not submitted a copy of your 2023 W-9 tax form, please navigate to the Tax Page of your account and submit the form by December 15, 2023.

The U.S. Internal Revenue Service requires Pond5 to maintain up-to-date tax information about contributors who have received $10 or more in cash payments in any given year. We are unable to continue sending payments on accrued earnings from Pond5 if the required tax form is not provided.

Again, this ONLY APPLIES TO ARTISTS BASED IN THE UNITED STATES. If you are not based in the United States, please disregard this message. Please don’t hesitate to contact us anytime at for any questions or support-related needs. Thank you for your immediate attention to this matter.


Your friends at Pond5
