I keep hearing that popular youtubers and video game streamers can make a living if they commit to it full time and do it 10+ hours a day can make upwards to 60k a year and sometimes more. is this taxable? Not to make this a political debate about whether or not we should be paying taxes but something about others who allegedly make a living doing this, should be paying taxes like the rest of us. It's highly likely that they do not receive benefits (insurance 401k etc) but they better not be on Medicaid or collecting food stamps or using any public service that tax money pays for UNLESS they are contributing. Heck, if they are earning that much anyway they should be ineligible anyway. All though they may be "full time" it really isn't a job. I'm not sure how I feel about this trend (and no I'm not jealous by any means because I can barely sit at my computer for more then a couple of hours and take pride that I have a real job and contribute to society.) I guess what I'm really wanting to know is what you fellow czers think about this topic in general? I'm not sure why when I think of this, the first thing that comes to mind if they are being taxed or not.
