Even if your income is from the proceeds of criminal activity the CRA requires you to declare it.aznnorth wrote: ↑Mar 28th, 2016 9:11 amK, just wondering... I know in the states you have to pay taxes on youtube partnership program (aka ad sense income generated from view counts). But what about in Canada? Who keeps track of it and do they send tax receipts based on countries?? Seem pretty hard to do outside the US since 100+ countries have citizens who make youtube money. I added monetise to my account and was approved. Just want to know the 411 in case i make any cash... Those top youtubers make anywhere from $100k - $500k/annum. Beats getting a real job, lol.
As for 'beats getting a real job', what makes you think it isn't a job too? Don't think generating that kind of income from Youtube videos is easy or doesn't take a lot of time and effort. Also, the ones who make that kind of income are in the very tiny miniority.
