Non-US Self-Publisher? #Tax Issues Don’t Need to be Taxing


Non-US Self-Publisher? Tax Issues Don’t Need to be Taxing.

I absolutely had to post this link to Catherine Ryan Howard’s blog and discussion with David Gaughran. It is chock-full of information for authors concerned about the U.S. tax laws if they are not U.S. citizens. I myself, had been trying to find bits of information here and there to prepare for the publication of my book this fall to keep a step ahead before losing my 30% in withholdings to book distributors due to non U.S. status. I would also like to give a shout-out to Maia Sepp, a generous author who has brought this information to my attention when I discovered her reading an article in the Indie Newspaper – Paperli.

It is so wonderful to be able to have so much kindness and support from fellow Indie’s in this exciting journey of birthing a book and learning how to set it free into the world. We all work to write better books and to work harmoniously with one another is a blessing.

Being Prepared is being a great step ahead of the game!
