Tax information submission threshold

Depending on your location, you may be required to provide certain information for tax purposes. If you are required to submit tax information, we'll enable you to enter your tax information when you reach this threshold.

To learn whether you need to provide tax information and, if necessary, how to submit it:

  1. Sign in to your account.
  2. Visit the Account settings page.
  3. In the 'Payment settings' section, click 'update tax information'.
  4. If you're required to enter tax information and you've reached the threshold, you'll see a tax wizard prompting you to enter your information.

Verification threshold

To verify the accuracy of your account information, we will mail a personal identification number (PIN) to your payment address when your earnings reach the verification threshold. You'll then be required to enter this PIN in your account. Learn more about address verification.

Depending on your location, you may also be asked to verify your phone number. As part of this process, our system will call you and provide you with a number that you'll have to enter in your AdSense account. Learn more about phone number verification.

Payment method selection threshold

According to our Terms and Conditions, active accounts need to reach the payment threshold in order to qualify for a payment. Since we don't ever issue payments for less than this threshold, we don't allow publishers to select a form of payment until their earnings have reached this amount.

For more information, please visit the payments guide.

Payment threshold

You will be paid out when your unpaid earnings reach the payments threshold and all holds have been removed from your account. Payment thresholds are based on the reporting currency that your AdSense reports are displayed in, not necessarily the currency in which you receive payment.

Cancellation threshold

If you decide to cancel your account and your account balance is greater than the cancellation threshold, you'll receive your final payment within approximately 90 days of the end of the month.
