Welcome Back Former Team and Unit Members

Former Independent Beauty Consultants who sign an Independent Beauty Consultant Agreement in the month of January and purchase a $20 Second Chance or $100 Starter Kit are eligible for special offers!

  • When she places an initial Section 1 wholesale order of $400 or more by February 28, she receives a $50 credit on her order.
  • When she places an initial Section 1 wholesale order of $600 or more by February 28, in addition to a $50 credit on her order she will also receive the trendy “Puttin’ on the Glitz” bracelet.

These offers, along with a line-up of fabulous products, are designed to entice former Independent Beauty Consultants to once again experience all that the Mary Kay Opportunity can offer: freedom, flexibility, and extra income!

If you already have current email address information for former Beauty Consultants you would like to contact directly, you can send an e-card and let them know that now is a great time to give the Mary Kay® opportunity another try!

Prior to sending this e-card, you’ll want to consider the eligibility requirements, such as whether the former beauty consultant has been completely inactive from her Mary Kay business for more than one year, has not previously returned products for repurchase and was in good standing with the Company at the time her Independent Beauty Consultant Agreement terminated.

Use this promotion to achieve your goals and you could earn your own Puttin’ on the Glitz, Sales Director qualification, or more!

To learn more, visit the FAQs provided.

Note: The opportunity to purchase a $20 Second Chance Starter Kit is available only to former Independent Beauty Consultants who are eligible to sign a new Independent Beauty Consultant Agreement.

As part of our standard privacy practices, Mary Kay does not share the contact information of former Independent Beauty Consultants with others.

2010 Tax Information and Tax Essentials

From marykayintouch.com

As a reminder, 2010 tax information will be postmarked and mailed to you on Feb. 1, 2011. Independent Beauty Consultants may receive one or both of the following two documents:

  • An Internal Revenue Service (IRS) form 1099-MISC for Independent Beauty Consultants and Independent Sales Directors who receive commissions, prizes or awards in excess of $600 in a calendar year. You also will receive this form if your wholesale purchases total $5,000 or more in a calendar year. If you do not receive form1099-MISC, you are still required to report your Mary Kay business activities to the IRS.
  • An Income Advisory Statement for Independent Beauty Consultants who receive at least $200 in Company prizes or awards during the year. The Income Advisory Statement lists total commissions earned, total prizes and awards and Career Car information (gross lease amount and amount paid by Mary Kay Inc.). You also will receive an Income Advisory Statement if you meet the requirements for a form 1099-MISC.

You should keep detailed records to support your income and expense information. These records may include, but are not limited to, sales tickets, packing slip/invoice included with each wholesale order, monthly commission and bonus statements and business expense receipts. In addition, you need to perform a physical count of the inventory that you had in stock as of Dec. 31, 2010.

The Company suggests using an accountant or personal tax adviser who is familiar with federal, state and local laws to advise and assist you in filing your federal and state income tax returns as well as, but not limited to, any gross receipts, excise, business and occupation, sales, use, property or other taxes you may owe.

For additional information, Tax Essentials for 2010 will be available on Feb. 1, 2011, as a guide to assist you in the preparation of your federal income tax return as it relates to your Mary Kay business.

Beginning Feb. 1, 2011, all Independent Beauty Consultants may also verify their 2010 wholesale purchases, prizes, awards and commissions from the Company through their 2010 Income Advisory Statements.

Beginning Feb. 1, 2011 you also may send a personally signed fax request to Consultant Records at (972) 687- 1112 or mail a personally signed, written request identifying the specific information needed. Be sure to include your Independent Beauty Consultant number and your current address.

Please allow 10 business days from the time it is received to process your request. Requests should be sent to:
