Hi there guys,
I’ve tried to understand this matter but it seems my braincells are just not capable enough to handle this. Oh well, I hope some of you could help me with 3 questions:
.) My account currently states that there is a certain amount of withheld taxes. How long will the stay there? If, for some reason, I never claim those, will they dissappear after a certain time or will it increase until the day that I finally claim it?
.) Can I actually claim those witheld taxes or can I only start to have less withheld taxes on future sales?
.) Question to Austrians (or anyone who knows the answer): I work full time in a normal office, and pay therefore taxes already for the dayjob income. Do you simply take your existing Tax ID and use it in the W8-form? Or would there be any reason not doing the W8 thing at all and to simply live with just having a small percentage of the actual item list price.
Thanks for all your answers! I know these questions may sound dumb, but I’d love to get your insights before connecting with a tax-consultent.
