I'm employeed in a big corporation in mexico and have some websites with adsense.
This year I have been receiving some cheques for a couple hundred and succesfully cashed them either in my banks here or on USA banks in the border. Bigger cheques are under way.
As the end of the year is coming I wonder how do I declare this taxes? Isn't a salary, right? isn't a comission either? What is this?
Actually, do you declare this earning at all!? or not, come'on, tell us, I'm not the SHCP. ;)

Also, if I declare the earnings, should be able to declare the expenses as well? (some bucks on PPC, banners, hosting, etc).
Are there mexican webmasters here in webmasterworld?
Do they, mexican webmasters, exist? :)

Could be easier to incorporate in the USA and start as a little bussines there?

Of course there's a lot of Mexican Webmasters, but not evrybody know how to write/read in English, and that is the first problem that we face, besides the local infrastructure and other stuff.

We have no clear legal regulations about paying taxes of the money that we make on the Internet, so most of the people that don't give receit (facturas) don't declare taxes to the SHCP (IRS in USA).

So if you want to pay taxes to the SHCP, you should go to the SHCP, get registered, and start paying the 15% of the money that you make. The only expenses that you can deduct are expenses that are related to your business and you health.

I dont know if you are American o Mexican, but If you are Mexican and you want to pay taxes in the USA, you must go to the IRS, get an TIN (Taxpayer Identification Number), and start paying taxes in th USA (that is what I do).

I'm glad to finally meet another one :), I'm mexican, living in Mexico.

Well, yes, Mexican tax laws are more tricky than equivalent American, I suppose.

I find that the main problem for being in order with taxes in Mexico is about the expenses, you know, you're always required an "factura oficial" (official bill with the SHCP registration picture on it).
For example, I wonder if I hire someone on Rumania via rentacoder to do some coding and pay through paypal, I would be able to deduct that expense.

So, that's why I'm considering the option of moving my starting web business to the USA and pay the proper taxes there.


Though, I'm not even sure if that makes any sense.
What are the main advantages that you find to pay your taxes in the USA? Also, did you make an LLC, corporate or something else? It's seems you also have a mexican "S.A.".

I sent you a mail to your mail here in ww.

If you hire someone in Rumania, you should document it vey well, and that expense is going to be deducted, but you have to give them proof of what you are doing.

I think you should register as a S Corporation in the usa. The main adventage that I see is that Im having is that Im learning about taxes, and besides that some afiiliates website like cj, amigos and others, only accept you if you have a International Taxpayer Identification Number.

Done, nice chat ;) thanks.

So, you have an S-Corporation, sounds cool, but I've read in several places that an S-Corporate cannot have non-resident shareholders, so, how's that?

Is there any other Mexican or latinamerican webmaster who has create an S-Corporation, C-Corporation or LLC on the USA that wants to share some experience?

Which is the preference for any of these options of incorporation for online business, mainly publishing services?
