Goggle has recently announced in an email to YouTubers all over that they “will
be required to deduct U.S. taxes from payments to creators outside of the U.S.”
The same burden is not levied to American YouTubers. The implementation of the
policy is soon to be as early as June 2021 and the deduction will be started
In an official statement Google has requested Youtubers outside U.S. to submit
their tax info in AdSense to determine the correct amount of taxes to deduct, if
any apply. ?If the tax info isn’t provided by May 31st 2021, Goggle may deduct
24% of the total earnings worldwide. ?The deduction of the tax will be from the
earnings of the viewership of U.S., i.e. from the viewers of the U.S. and
through ad views, Premium, Super Chat, Super Stickers and Channel Memberships.
If provided relevant tax information, the youtuber does not have to pay any tax
money but in case ignored and relevant tax information is not submitted, 24% tax
on the entire monthly earning will be deducted from YouTube.
New Tax Rules for YouTubers outside U.S.
If a youtuber ignores and doesn’t submit tax info: Pay 24% of total earnings
across all regions.
If a youtuber submits tax info and eligible for a treaty benefit: Pay 15% from
the monthly earning viewers in the U.S.
If a youtuber submits tax info but is not eligible for tax treaty: Pay 30% tax
from the money earned from monthly from the views in the U.S.
These new rules has made a global outcry and soon make YouTubers outside U.S.
bit poorer. The deadline to fill the tax form is on May 31st 2021. Google also
warns that if tax forms aren’t submitted the default rate i.e., 24% of total
earnings for individual account will be deducted.
