Submit your US tax info to Google

Depending on your location, Google may be required to collect tax-related information from you. If you do have to provide your tax information to Google, you can do so from your AdSense account. Not all publishers are required to provide tax information.

Note: Make sure you submit your tax information before the 20th to receive a payment in the same month.

How to submit your tax information

  1. Sign in to your AdSense account.
  2. Click Payments and then Payments info.
  3. Click Manage settings.
  4. Scroll to "Payments profile" and click edit Edit next to "United States tax info".
  5. Click Manage tax info.
  6. On this page you'll find a guide that will help you to select the appropriate form for your tax situation.
    Tip: After you submit your tax information, follow the instructions above to check the “United States tax info” section of your Payments profile to find the tax withholding rates that may apply to your payments.

    You’ll also be able to make any edits in case your individual or business circumstances change. If you've changed your address, make sure your updated permanent address is the same in both sections: "Permanent residence address" and "Legal address". This will ensure that your year-end tax forms (e.g., 1099-MISC, 1099-K, 1042-S) are delivered to the correct location. If you’re in the US, you must resubmit your W-9 form with your updated legal address

Note: If you use AdSense to monetize on YouTube, visit US tax requirements for YouTube earnings to understand the US tax requirements for your US earnings.

Change your name

The name in your payments profile is not linked to your tax forms. If your name changes, you'll need to update your tax information in addition to your payments profile information.

Payment timeline

If your payments are on hold because you're required to enter tax information, and you provide your tax information after the 20th of the month, you won't be eligible to receive a payment in that month's payment cycle. If your tax information is provided after the 20th, your earnings will rollover to the following month and you'll be issued a payment in the next payment cycle.

Per our payment timeline, monthly payments are issued between the 21st and the 26th, as long you have met the payment threshold and all holds are removed by the 20th.

Tip: We recommend that all publishers regularly verify the accuracy of their tax information. Google is not responsible for confirming or updating publisher tax information. For specific information regarding US tax requirements, visit the IRS website.
