    Hey Everyone,

    I am totally new to Adsense but not knew to IM. I just wanted to know what type of tax paperwork had to be filled out for someone using adsense in the USA. Is there a form after making $500 or something like that? Or is it all up to you individually?

    I was hoping that you would just sign up and they send you checks:D (after getting clicks.)


    If anyone could fill me in, that would be great!

    Google tells you what to do, but be careful we are in a economic depression

    Google makes you fill out a tax form before they will send you money. Should be part of the sign up process. Maybe after they approve you.

    Even if you fill up the W-2 form which i assume google will send you, you also need to mention the earning in your income tax. So if you are self-employed, you need to put the $500 as a profit. Cheers
