Where can I ask this question?

Paying Tax In Multiple Countries? | Apple

I would like to sell my app on the app store (Apple) for an amount of money. If I wanted to sell my app in all of the available countries, what tax do I have to pay and for what countries?

I live in England,



I was told by a moderator on Stack Overflow to ask the question here. I don't see why people don't like the question when an elected moderator told me to do this.

This is what he said:

  • You might be able to ask on money.stackexchange.com, but I'm not sure if your question will be OK or too broad to be an acceptable question on that site. Commented Aug 24, 2017 at 10:01

    Also, most countries have a minimum income threshold before you are taxed, so as long as the income from your app is below that amount you shouldn't have to pay any tax at all. Commented Aug 24, 2017 at 10:02
  • Thanks @angussidney , Ill look into that :-) Commented Aug 24, 2017 at 10:04
  • I suggest asking this question on Meta Quora :) Commented Aug 24, 2017 at 11:26

Money Stack Exchange (mentioned by @angussidney) has a few questions from App Store developers about taxes, e.g.

so it's probably OK to ask it there, but be sure to read their help center before asking a question. It does mention:

Sole Proprietorships


  • Taxes as they pertain to an individual's return
  • Thanks @Glorfindel. After asking on three websites that is the first genuine helpful answer that I have been given. Commented Aug 24, 2017 at 11:21

I suggest posting your question on Apple Support!

:) That must be the right place over the Internet.

  • I have tried that and it has been a week with about 150 views and no answer. Commented Aug 24, 2017 at 11:18

    Apple's developer forums ( forums.developer.apple.com/community/distribution/app-store ) are probably a better place than their general support forums. The former aren't as cluttered with general software support issues. You can also contact Apple's Banking and Tax team directly via their iTunes Connect contact forms. I've done this in the past for tax-related issues, although this question isn't necessarily specific to Apple but how you handle tax for international software sales in the U.K. Commented Aug 24, 2017 at 14:41

Not all questions fit the Stack Exchange model.
I got a useful answer to my question on Quora. So, sometimes you should ask on another site than Stack Exchange. Like Quora.

  • This should be re-phrased a little. You told us you got a useful answer on Quora. So "Quora" is actually an answer to the site-recommendation question. However, as it stands now, people may think you're trolling. Let me see if I can edit this, to make it work better. Commented Aug 24, 2017 at 12:06

    I took the liberty of re-phrasing this in a major way. If you disagree with my edit, you can roll it back - click on the "edited ... ago" above my gravatar for this. I believe, however, that this edit will make your answer better received. Commented Aug 24, 2017 at 12:09
  • Still feels a little negative towards SE, seems like the true answer is that, not all questions fit the Stack Exchange model. There isn't much more to that statement that is required. The fact there is another Q&E website, named Quora, where this question was answer is besides the point.
