    As the title says:

    "Pls help me setting up an ad for my taxes!"

    Yeah so i wanna start making some money with the Internet and CPA Marketing.

    I live outside the USA (Italy) and i see that those CPA companies still accept people overseas, but what's making me stop before taking any action with some methods i know is the whole tax stuff.

    I've searched A LOT into some Italian forums related to the niche "make money online". But all those pigs asking for taxes are using Adsense or some other italian ppc and WHAT THE HELL there's not a final and collective opinion about taxes.
    They say that every accountant has a different opinion and even our "IRS" never gives a final answer when you ask them about this. However, the most common reply is that i should have a "VAT NUMBER" but not any other advices (like when/how to file taxes etc) !

    There's nobody in Italy who's making money through affiliate marketing (cb, paydotcom, cj) or with CPA marketing so i can't ask anybody!

    I've tried speaking with my parents' accountant but she doesn't know anything about IM.

    What i'm trying to do now is posting an ad on those freelancers websites. I hope that some new accountant knowing something about Italian laws can help me.

    3 points now:

    1- Since i want to make a understandable ad, do i really need an "accountant" or another kind of professional?

    2- Would you help me setting it up shooting me a brief sample right now?

    3- Any suggested price he should ask me if anybody would reply? Consider he just needs to tell me what to do, i'll actually take any action.

    Not really sure what you're asking?

    It seems like like you want to sign up with US based companies. As a non-US citizen you will have to fill out a W-8 form for each US based company that you do offers for.

    The taxes you will have to pay will be on whatever the tax forms the Italian government requires of you. Your parent's accountant (or you) only needs to know how to file a business tax return. (income-expenses=net)

    in a nutshell: nobody here in Italy seems to know this problem (taxes on earnings from foreign companies). So i'd like to post an adv into those freelancer websites to see if somebody knows something about those regulations.

    Oh and i don't have a business.
    Hope i'm clear now!

    I think the link I referred you to answers the questions about earning income from US companies - in short, you do not pay taxes to the US government - whatever tax you owe would be handled in Italy however you normally pay taxes. (assuming you declared it)

    You may not have a business but if you were earning money in that fashion you should still be entitled to deduct your expenses on your Italian tax returns. If you don't understand what the info in the link means its no big deal, have your parent's accountant read it and they should know what to do from there. If not, maybe a new accountant?

    As far as finding someone over here to do the taxes for you, the best I could say would be to google tax accountants in the US - those who have websites could/may be able to do it for you. Most people just use one of their own local accountants, who most likely don't know anything about Italian tax codes.
