Q: When will my payment arrive?
A: Royalties are issued based on the author’s contract. Some are paid for the period ended December 30th in March. Most contracts are paid for the period ended June 30th at the end of August or September.
Q: How do I change my address?
A: Please send an email to our business office with your new address. Please be sure to include your name, address, phone number, and e-mail address. Or you can send a letter and address it to our business office (Business Office, University Press of Mississippi, 3825 Ridgewood Road, Jackson, MS 39211, USA). We do not accept address changes over the telephone.
Q: Can royalties be paid in foreign currencies?
A: Yes, but only wire payments for foreign banks and you will be charged a $45 fee. Contact the business office for a form.
Q: Will I receive a 1099?
A: You will receive a 1099 if you receive a payment from UPM. Since the income is technically earned in 2018, a 1099 will be mailed to you the following February so that you can complete your 2018 tax return. If you did not receive a 1099 for 2017, please send an email to our business office.
Q: I was previously not a U.S. citizen, but I recently attained U.S. citizenship. How does this affect my royalties?
A: Please email the business office.
