to the Hubpages earning part (not google or amazon) : they say you are responsible for your own tax forms/info etc.
---Not that I'd make alot of $....
When they "submit your tax info" it's pretty much only your SS number and address. The information required when you sign up for the ad program isn't much, and it's nothing complicated at all. As far as your taxes go, when tax-return time comes you'd report your earnings on your return, the same way you would if you had a part-time job somewhere (or something like that). If you earn over a certain amount you'd need to report it on a separate, self-employment, form for the state and Federal returns. I think the number is over six hundred dollars for a Federal return, and over four hundred for a MA return. Earnings under that would be entered as "other income".
Even if you have to fill out a self-employment form, it's simple. You can see what you earn over the course of the previous year by going to your PayPal account and finding that information. If you have trouble finding it (next year, of course) I imagine there's someone who could easily help you. Chances are, if you look for it in your PayPal account, you won't have trouble finding it.
Since I have had no earnings paid to me for writing my Hubs I need report nothing. What Hub pages is saying though is that as a writer you are self-employed and if you earn any money from your writings, you are required to pay the necessary taxes as the income is just that, income earned.

It's my first year doing taxes on my own and I'm a bit (actually completely) baffled.Has hubpages sent out the electronic w-2's yet? Do I just count it as part of my total income on my 1040EZ form?

What do you think about the idea of having wills set aside for each and every writer here on the hubpages platform? I've had this discussion in the past with another hubber within the community and we thought that it would be an interesting forum topic. If you were to suddenly pass on, wouldn't it...
