My fellow UG'ers, my friend and me had an argument about following question:

When a band plays a gig and they get money for it, do they have to pay taxes from that money?

And if they don't, do they have to pay taxes at all, if the only income they have is the money they get from their gigs?

Never heard of Seinfeld, what kind of music do they play? Assuming they use Kramers, it must be heavy!



SAVE GIBSON

No, there shouldn't be taxes on money you get from gigging. I'm sure our government would probably do it.

Around here they have to, it being an income. Id on't know about the US though.
You're not going to tell me it's wrong the Rolling Stones or Britney Spears paying taxes for their shows is wrong, are you? They are not exactly poor, after all.

in New York state you have to report any payment over $200 as income. so yes you would have to pay taxes. but New York is ****ed up and it sux here.

In England you get a personal allowance. Once you go over that amount (taking out your expenses making the money) you start paying tax.

It depends if you earn more than the tax allowance in the UK. I'm not that well informed on the tax system of Austria however.

technically it's income, so yes you have to pay taxes on it though. just don't report it though, problem solved*
