Paying your taxes, not your dues

22 Aug

It’s gotten to be THAT time again.
I, a British citizen have received that unwelcome email from Mister Amazon asking me to file for taxes in the United States Of America.

Sadly, because I sell books through Amazon US, I have to.

The IRS will get something like 0.0001 of a cent but they’ll take it all the same.

And this is why I can call myself an author, not a writer.
Because I pay fucking taxes. Fucking taxes in a country I don’t even LIVE in!
