I will not be jailed for tax evasion merely because I’m illiterate in that area and nobody ever taught me how to handle it. :(

Just a word of advise re that statement,

ignorance and not understanding never has, or never will be, a line of defense for not paying taxes – that’s true in the UK and the US (I’m originally from the UK now a US citizen) – you do not get taught how to do taxes, it is your responsibility to either learn or pay a tax professional.

They will come after you and take any measures necessary to get their tax money.

Also at $100 p/month that’s $1200 per yr and that’s over the threshold I believe so you would need to file your earnings.

I didn’t mean to imply that I’d deliberately avoid paying taxes by using ignorance as a defense but thanks for the information.

Good thing I’m UK-based because I have no idea how to read a tax form, much less submit one. EDIT: Legalese is one of the greatest sins of mankind and should be abolished. I have great difficulty grasping it. :(

Legalese can be pretty awful I must say! Our legal team spent a long time trying to make sure our new T&C’s are human readable!

Most of the Australian tax forms are pretty good, though there’s a lot of them and I sometimes still get confused doing my personal taxes. Best thing to do is always consult your tax advisor, and of course whatever country you’re in, make sure you’re paying your taxes :-)

I don’t have a tax advisor, nor do I earn enough of an income to qualify as a taxpayer. (roughly $100 a month) I cannot read legalese, and I feel this W-9 tax requirement is going to run me out of Audiojungle and other places. I’ve run into it on sites I’ve wanted to open an online store or SFX store in, and it asked me questions I couldn’t answer. I don’t know what a Tax ID# is, nor if I have one or what it is if I do.

I will not be jailed for tax evasion merely because I’m illiterate in that area and nobody ever taught me how to handle it. :(

EDIT: I may be UK-based now but I’m moving to the US in a couple of years, so I will be forced to reckon with this W-9 form one way or another, and the last thing I want is to be confronted with a form that I do not know how to fill out.

I wonder if you have a song called “Monkey Business.” :D

If you don’t, you should. :)

I learned that while the system may not always be fair, find a way to swing it in your favor. Just ask the Top Authors. :D
