Submit Google Adsense Tax submission page
If you are waiting for your Adsense payment and come across a situation where you need to submit your Tax submission details to Google, then you always select the option "NON US residents" but that does not mean that you are not required to pay tax to Government.
If your Google Adsense earning has reached eligibility limit then you need to pay attention to Tax information submission. For Indian publishers, the Tax submission details are not necessary element on Adsense setting page but for US publishers, the tax details need to be submittedon it.
If you are a new Adsense customer and waiting for Adsense payment then some minor settings are required. Make sure that your Adsense account is not on hold. If your Adsense payment is on hold, payment will not be processed for redemption. You have to watch Adsense account status before the 15th of every month. If not done before 15th of month then that payment will be carried forward to next month. Remove the hold Adsense status.
After that you are required to submit the currency in which you want to print your check. Once you specified the currency then last and most important step is to submit the "Google Adsense Tax submission details". If you are an Indian publisher, then you are required to change a few minor settings.
Tax submission information is basically related to the US residents, US publishers are tax payers and it is only US publisher who have to deal with Adsense account settings page. If you are an Indian publisher and dealing with Adsense settings page then you can follow safe path by selecting yourself as non-US residents but still it is your right to submit the Tax information to Income tax department. If you are waiting for Adsense payment in India for Google Adsense program then you need to submit tax information form to Income tax department. It is specified by Google Adsense team that Tax submission is only for US players but still it is your right to let Government know about your earnings.
Once again, I am clearing that Indian publishers have to select NO for each question being asked to them on the Tax information page of Adsense account.
Once you have gone through all the steps, you need to mention your name as your signature in the text box. But later, you have to pay Tax according to the slab described by the income tax department. The taxation period starts after 31st march of every year which is known to be the financial year for submitting payment.
If you come under Adsense Tax submission zone then do not try to hide it from Income tax department else you will be meant as a fraud and consider as a criminal under the eye of Indian Government.
The chances are also there that your Google Adsense account will be banned if you have not paid Tax to income tax department. So, it is always better to stand one step ahead of Google Adsense team. I suggest Adsense high earners that keep track of "Adsense tax submission details" and sail yourself on the front seat.
