Affiliate Status

What does that mean? It means that you are a Affiliate, NOT an employee of Carolina Country Bling. An Affiliate is a self employed sales person who solicits orders for, Carolina Country Bling merchandise at a discounted price to resell at retail price for a profit (commissions).

A person is not considered an Affiliate until all sign up information and/or payment/kit purchasing fees have been accepted by CCB are complete. No person may represent CCB (i.e. accepting payments, promoting products, sponsoring) unless their affiliate account has been approved and accepted by CCB.

Since you are a Affiliate and not an employee of Carolina Country Bling, no withholding for federal, social security, state, or local tax will be done for you. You will receive a 1099 form at tax time, usually in January, for only commissions and overrides paid to you over $600.00 (six hundred dollars). Profits made from your shows, in person purchases, etc. will be your responsibility to keep track of and file with the IRS.
