Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
When I put personal I was just meaning that I don't have a company, I make the website myself. The website provides links to news stories on the internet. I have adverts on my site which are provided by google ads and they pay me. I also advertise my website through Google ads so they put my ad on other websites in order to get traffic to my site and charge me for that. The amounts they charge me are sesperate transactions to the payments I receive and what they charge me is more than what I receive.
I started the website 2 months ago so this has all happened in the last two months. I received my first charge from Google 2 weeks ago and I am expecting my first payment soon. I have not registered a company. I already fill in a tax return for my full time job as a Surveyor which is nothing to do with the website. I made the website for fun in my spare time with the thought that in the future if it got successful I could start a company for the website.
