Beyond Frontiers: U.S. Taxes for International Self-Published Authors

 In recent years platforms like Amazon's KDP, CreateSpace, Smashwords, Draft2Digital, etc, have given authors the opportunity to publish their own work.

Many of the self-published authors are not U.S. citizens, many may not have even visited the U.S. once, but because their royalties are generated in the U.S., they must pay U.S. taxes.

Taxes for these royalties fall into the 30% tax category which can be affected by tax treaties. This can be confusing as this is not a common area of the tax code.

This book, which contains the latest 2014 rules on international tax, explains how international self-published authors should handle their US tax situation.



Beyond Frontiers: A tax guide for non-U.S. citizens

Non-U.S. citizens have unique situations that make their tax returns more complex than that of U.S. citizens and residents who don't have anything to do with foreign countries.

This book explores the different situations that non-citizens face.

It starts by explaining how the tax system works in the U.S. Then it follows with the rules of tax residency and proceeds to explain how the tax code applies to residents, nonresidents, and people with both statuses through the year. It has lots of examples with filled out forms that you can use as a guide.

Nowhere you can find a more comprehensive guide written for the taxpayer but valuable to the tax professional who doesn't work with international clients very often!
