Adsense is an ad serving service for web-masters to show related ads in their site and earn from a CPC factor. Most Indian bloggers use adsense to show ads on their blog. There are a lots of guide to adsense basics, adsense setup, etc all information in Adsense Category.
Some of us earn much from adsense and make blogging our primary work, and some of us uses adsense as a extra earnings. But these earnings are tax payable. As a beginner, someone is curious about many factors, as will his earnings pre tax-deducted, or there’s need of PAN card, or how to pay tax to government, etc etc. The best thing here is that we don’t have to pay tax directly. We have to pay tax on our total income as it is some legal income, and the tax amount depends on how much you earn.
For individuals, the tax is free for earnings upto 1.40 lacs p.s, which is a very high limit for casual bloggers who earn through adsense a little pretty-some amount, only huge earners (pro bloggers) have to think about it. But as Google itself is in USA, it confirms from us if there is some US activities belonging to our site, content for which they will deduct and report tax information. We, Indian bloggers sign-up using India address, but Google re-confirms it from us after our unpaid earnings reach an amount of 10$ (actually more than 9$). We can get our payment by cheque once our earnings reach at-least 100$. We need to provide tax information or else our earnings will be on hold, and we cannot encash them, even we reach payment level. For providing correct tax information, follow the below screen-shots.
