I’m in the process of doing my taxes and have one major request and one (old) question:
Please make it possible to export income data by year (I can’t seem to find that function) and maybe in the form of a proper invoice.
Patreon already handles charging and paying VAT (European sales tax) for patrons in the EU
I 've read every help article multiple times, but I still don’t get how this works. Because for me (in Austria) it works like this or should work like this:
- My patrons pay me money
- I add the money to my yearly income which I report to the proper authority
- I then pay income tax but I DO NOT have to pay VAT because my income is low enough
So what taxes are patreon collecting exactly and which authority is getting money for a VAT I don’t have to pay? I don’t earn that much with patreon right now, so the collected tax is a bit of a punch to the gut, especially since I’m not sure who, what or why is getting the money.
