youtube will start deducting U.S. taxes on users outside the United States


It seems that the content makers on the YouTube video platform will soon find themselves in a situation they were not waiting for, which is about imposing U.S. taxes on content makers after they have been exempt edited for years because they are not on U.S. soil, but Facebook's laws have changed and it will become mandatory.

In many Arab countries, these countries do not impose any taxes on content makers on social media platforms, and in the past, they were not concerned with U.S. taxes although YouTube is a U.S. platform in the first place, the situation has changed as new laws come into effect, where the company announced that it will soon start automatically deducting U.S. taxes from the income earned by non-resident content creators in the United States.

The sources refer to the content makers who have begun to come up with emails from Google telling them about it, with the wording of the message as follows: "We are communicating with you because Google will be asked to deduct U.S. taxes from payments to creators outside the United States later this year (in June 2021).

Over the next few weeks, we will ask you to send your tax information in AdSense to determine the correct amount of taxes to be deducted, if any. If your tax information is not provided by May 31, 2021, Google may be required to deduct up to 24 percent of your total earnings worldwide."
