Important: Tax Information Required

Dear Amazon I received an email from what appears to be you guys ap-1099 about a month ago asking for a hard copy of a 1099, seems fine but also seems fishy, just wanted to check in here if its legit and if everybody got one. Exact email below. You may have previously provided tax identity information through our self-service interview. However IRS regulations now require that we collect a signed, hardcopy W-9 from you. Please send your completed, signed Form W-9, including your vendor code, via mail to: Appstore c/o AP Tax PO Box 80683 Seattle, WA 98108-0683 We recommend sending the form through a traceable method so you can confirm our receipt. We are unable to accept any forms submitted via e-mail. Please note that the Form W-9 should be submitted by U.S. persons only. If you are a non-U.S. developer, please submit the appropriate signed, hardcopy Form W-8. Thank you for distributing your app on the Amazon Appstore for Android.

I got a similar e-mail today. Did Amazon say it was legit?
