PIP! - I Got My Payment In Progress Line Today

Yes! I got my "PIP" today! Checked it at around 3pm "Philly"-time and there it was!

If I'm itching to spend the money today, I'm going to do what Rose suggested. She found a way to be able to spend her Adsense money a little earlier!

So the wait is over for this month of February!

There Has Been A Payment In Progress Sighting!

There has been a "PIP" sighting for this month - February 2011!

According to one of the more popular Google Adsense related forums there have been more than 1 or 2 people who have posted that they have received their "payment in progress" lines on their adsense accounts!

One person that posted is from the States and they receive their adsense payment by check. Even someone from the UK has posted that they have received their "PIP" and they get their google adsense payment by check.

So far no one has posted that they received their "payment in progress" - those who get their adsense payment by EFT / Bank transfer.

Although it seems as though there may be a ray of hope because today is not over yet and it seems that some think that maybe adsense will post "PIP's" for those that receive their adsense payment by EFT after 2 pm today. (It seems to have something to do with how banks will process direct deposits at specific times of the day).

So today is not over yet and I'm will keep my fingers crossed that my "PIP" will show up today.

"You Are Scheduled To Be Sent A Payment...................."

This appeared in my Adsense account today which means that the "payment in progress" pre-process has begun!

It will be interesting to see how this month's "PIP" will happen since February is the shortest month of the year!

I took a look at my past payment history and saw that on the Februarys the adsense payments were issued either on the 24th or the 26th of the month (and yes that is for all the past February months for the past few years) - which means that this will be an interesting time because for this month of February the 24th is on a Thursday and the 26th of this month is on a Saturday.

So it will be interesting to see when this "payment in progress" actually shows up in the google adsense accounts.

So stay tuned........................

Did You Get Your End-Of-The-Year Google Income Statement?

Well I'm happy to say that I got mine earlier on this week.

In case you didn't know, Adsense sends an income form for the previous year and you will need this information in order to include this Adsense income on your tax returns.

If you don't receive it by the end of this month then you should definitely contact Adsense because you will need this information to fill out your tax return.

And just in case you're wondering, it won't do you any good not reporting your adsense income because Adsense has to report it and if you don't report it as well then you might get in trouble with the IRS.

It doesn't matter if your Adsense income is small - if you don't report your income you could get in some serious trouble!
