Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Unreal DevGrant and taxes

Our accountant tries to file the Unreal DevGrant we have received last year.

Do you have any experience, how dev studios which are companies (LLC or similar) classify and file grants like this? We didn't receive any documents from Epic (except for wire transfer) so its kind of tricky to handle at the moment.

Any help would be appreciated.

US based developers that receive a Dev Grant do receive an IRS form 1099 from Epic, after the end of the year. Dev Grant recipients outside the US do not receive any tax documentation. As there are numerous factors that can impact tax consequences (type of entity, region, etc), you should consult with a tax professional if there are any questions about any related tax impact.
