Making an Modest Living with AdSense? Move Abroad

May 23, 2005 • 9:49 am | comments (4) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Google AdSense

I know several people who have or will be quitting their day job to become a full time publisher. They make their money from advertisers and AdSense. There are new discussions taking place at WebmasterWorld where people are discussing the pros and cons of moving outside of the United States to find a lower cost of living. This way they can use their Adsense income and live modestly in a place like India or other places that cost less. Maybe even tax free, like the Bahamas.

Rio de Janiero Brazil is quite nice, cost of living about 2/5 of US, and only a 8 hour flight south.

I think it's a great idea to move south with an online income and am planning to do it as soon as I have the sufficient income! Come visit me!

What are the tax rules if you do this? I'm moving to Bangkok, Thailand in May...will I still have to pay taxes to the United States? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Last I read, you are tax exempt up to $86,000... I think.
