Hi my Loves 💜,
Patreon has to do some changes. Since I’m not really able to explain this as well as they can, here is the info in their words:
There will be some changes that we’ll be seeing which may affect some of your pledges. Due to new laws passing in several countries and US states, Patreon will be required to start charging sales tax on some pledges starting July 1st.
Less than half of all patrons will be charged sales tax, and for most, the amount will be very small. For example, sales tax rates in the US range from 4% to 11%, so on a $5 pledge, that would be between 20 cents and 55 cents.
Whether or not you will be charged sales tax depends on your location, and what is considered taxable there. Not every pledge is taxable, not all benefits are taxable in every location, and sometimes only a fraction of a pledge will be taxable. The money that Patreon collects as a result of these laws are paid directly to local governments.
If you’re in a location where sales tax will be required, you should expect to receive an email from Patreon with more information about this very soon, but I wanted to make sure you were aware of these changes way ahead of July 1st when they go into effect.
Normally most Patrons already pay sales tax, because in most areas that is already required on just about anything you buy if you’re not a business. But of course I’m also going to anything in my power to even maybe look into changing pledges if it is too much taxated. Just let me know your thoughts/requests.
Of course I hope I won’t lose too many of you because of this and I am just super happy to have you guys here. If you need more info, I’ll be happy to help and if I can’t , I’m sure customer support will guide you as well.
I’m already super honored and grateful you see value in my work and I want to firmly thank you for all of your support 💜
I am so sorry for this and I just wanted to keep you informed 😥💜
Here is some more info about this:
(As you can see the majority of the Patrons already pay sales taxes since 2015 and it’s included in the pledge already)
Sales tax rates in the US are between 4% and 11%. And between that range is what is going to be added to your pledge depending on your region 💜
I hope you appreciate the info and I didn’t scare you away. I was a bit lost on how to pass this info 🙈💜 I’m so sorry 💔
Love you guys 💜💜💜
