    I'm a developer from Sweden and I can't seem to understand what I have to do with the money I've got from Apple. I'm an individual developer and sell apps to all countries besides Japan. When I get money from Apple, what do I have to do with them? I've filled out the US tax form (required for selling apps). Do I have to fill in other tax forms?

    So I guess that my question is: Is this payment from Apple taxed with whatever taxes I need to sell in other countries and now I only need to pay my Swedish tax?

    And yes, I've tried to find out the answer.

    Thanks

    I'm in the US and I'm not a tax professional. Apple doesn't withhold any taxes. They also don't send any tax forms or other info. When It's time for you pay your taxes you need to figure out your earnings yourself.

    Are you saying they don't send you anything at the end of the year? How do you figure out what to file/claim/whatever then? I recall having to fill out something for taxes when I was signing up as a developer...

    You get payments every month. That's what you have to go on.

    How it works in Belgium is, you just put on how much u earned total with the apple sales, then the government will figure out how much taxes still needs to be payed based upon them.
    tadaa :)
