24% Withholding Tax on ALL your YouTube Revenue

YouTube officially started withholding tax from ALL your YouTube revenue in June 2021, not just your US-sourced revenue, if you did not add your tax info to your AdSense. If you did, YouTube withholds a maximum of 30% of your US-sourced revenue which is less than 24% of all your YouTube revenue.

This affects all YouTubers in all MCNs and those partnered directly with YouTube.

No, you won’t. If you delay, that money is gone forever. YouTube will not refund you. Your MCN will not refund you. The more you delay, the more money you lose!
