    hi,

    A small question for Non-US residents.

    Earning money through AC is great and all. But............

    When you file for tax in your own country, how will you file it?

    AC sends money through paypal which we withdraw to card or bank account.
    What about when paying tax? IT will ask for "source of income"?
    We cannot give AC as source of income. Becoz we are doing this in an illegal way. If IT dept., contact AC we will be caught for cheating and fraud.

    How to get around this mess?

    Thats the problem I am facing now^_^. "Source of income" which is got illegally.

    Any ideas?

    lol will that work? It looks so simple^_^
    But You need to show proof of source. If source is kinda illegal acc to government, not to us actually^_^.
    Hope my IT dumbos accept it.
    As long as I pay extra tax they won't bug me.

    More advices will help alot.^_^

    thank you

    Or just set up a small website. Tell them you are making money selling ebook information, freelance writing, etc.

    The IT dept will never dig so deep into it. Don't worry. Btw, so many others are earning this way and are paying their taxes. Source of income: Writing website content, or something similar... ask your CA.

    Depends on your country's policy. Some countries are not strict about tax, especially for income derived from online work. If you really want to pay tax, just say you are a freelancer. Why would the IT dept want to dig so much in your source of income? They should just be thankful that you pay tax. Many don't.

    Don't worry about the source. I'm a Canadian in Japan and I paid tax on my online income this year, but they really had no idea what I was talking about when I explained what the money came from. In the end they wrote on the documents in Japanese "web advertising". If they audit you they'll ask for exact documentation, but I don't think they really care what AC's terms of services are -- they just want their tax money.
