Do you pay taxes from AdSense revenues (non-US guys, of course)?

    It's just interesting to know wheter anyone non-US resident pays taxes from AdSense.
    And I believe you do, so interesting to know the procedure.
    In my country that would remind of circus, as any activity related to having deal with state.:D

    I will be paying tax on my earnings as they're too high not to.

    In Australia at least if you run what is deemed a "hobby" it is classed as tax free. Now my site is what I consider to be a hobby, but my accountant has said that as I receive a monthly cheque then the Australian Taxation Office will classify that income as "bussiness". If I only received payments occasionally it "could" be considered a hobby and therefore tax free.

    What did it for me was my accountant said that eventually the tax office will cotton onto Google ads & quite possibly ask Google to provide records for payments made to Australians. If Google comply with this, then the ATO can audit you up to 5 years, and I would hate to pocket G cheques for 5 years & then have the ATO hit me for back taxes. So, I decided the best way was just to pay the tax & be done with it.

    As I have a regular job, and am in charge of paying the wages to all employees (including myself), I have been taxing myself at a higher rate, so when I put my tax in at the end of the financial year, I will declare my Google earnings & will already be ahead in my tax payments, so hopefully won't have to pay any extra on my G earnings.

    In my opinion it's better to be safe than sorry.

    Glad to hear that your earnings are high.
    My G income is less then average. And of course my f. state will never see a cent in taxes. Though, if state bodies would have some brains they would also ask Google to give us out. :)

    Oh don't get me wrong, I'm not raking in big money (I wish), but do earn $xxx per month, which is too high for me not to declare. Even our tax office can't confirm if I should pay taxes or not, but I'd rather give them the money & not worry about an audit if/when they ever ask Google for records. The plus side is that I can claim my expenses, such as hosting, board fees, software etc.

    To me it's just about sleeping easy. I'd rather not pay the money, but it's such a grey area in what I'm doing I've decided just to pay the money & be done with it.

    It depends from country to country, or a better way of putting it: from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. Google has set up shop in Ireland and you can be bloody sure they will pass on information to most European countries at some point, if they don't already do that. Not that they voluntarily do that, they just comply with the law. It is really very simple: when money changes hands, your government wants to know about it and tax you if they can.

    Sooooooooooooo true! :D

    It depends on income tax rules in your country and how they classify the income from adsene ( business, hobby, other income ? )... If you in middle eastern countries then you probably will not as they don't have income tax..

    There is income tax here.
    But government is not too troubled to organize any system of cash flow disclosure with other countries.
    They just living with hope that some day you'll voluntary come to tax police, waste your day or two fulfilling tons of declarations and pay :) Innocent simplicity.

    I pay US$20 for every check I received in Brazil. now with EFT, the tax is US$10 for first 3 months, and uS$15 for others months.

    If earnings are more than R$ 1,300 (almost US$550), I need to pay about 27% :sad:
