# Do I Have to Pay Taxes on My Google Adsense Earnings?
Google Adsense is required to collect tax information from those who participate in the program . If you’re a business , you’ll need to put your EIN number on your application . If you’re an individual , all you’ll need is your social security number . If you don’t have that information when you initially sign up , you can still apply for the Google Adsense program . But be advised that Google Adsense will withhold payments to you until they receive your tax information .
While Google does not withhold taxes or provide any tax advice , they will send you a 1099 once your earnings reach a certain amount . Of course , if you are a Non-US business and have no activity in the United States , you will not need to provide this information .
