If HubPages has you consent to receiving 1099 electronically then why do they not deliver it electronically or otherwise? If they are not providing a 1099 at all, then no need to mislead. It would be nice if HubPages would confirm that they do not deliver so some of us can stop waiting for a 1099.
Below is what HubPages states on their TAX link:
"HubPages can provide your annual 1099 form electronically (recommended).
You may consent to receive electronic 1099 forms below. If you provide consent, each year when your 1099 form is ready, HubPages will email you with instructions for accessing the form. By providing consent now, you enable electronic delivery of all future 1099 forms to you. You may withdraw consent at any time by editing the “1099 Delivery” setting in your Tax Information. You will receive paper 1099 forms if you do not consent (or if you withdraw consent later)."
