Patreon announced that they are being required by law to start adding sales tax to more patron pledges starting on July 1st, 2020. This affects patrons in some parts of the US and 17 other countries
Some patrons will see an additional line item on their receipt for sales tax starting July 1st. Since tax laws and rates vary from country to country and state to state, the amount will be different for different patrons. The money that Patreon collects as a result of these laws will be paid directly to local governments.
As a supporter of other artists on Patreon, I’m paying attention to how this affects us all as artists and patron and will always try to minimize the overhead that impacts your desire to contribute. If you have concerns about this new policy, let’s talk about it!
In the meantime, I trust to have some new music for you next week that was written during my stay-at-home adventure. It’s called “Outside My Window”, and I think you’re really going to dig it!
