YouTube had previously announced that it would start taxing content creators who are not US Citizens. Content creators who have been depending on YouTube for income especially during this tough time of Covid 19 have really felt the impact of the taxes.
One of them is a Kenyan comedian Terence Creative who has penned an emotional message to You Tube requesting them to stop taxing non USA citizens. Terence in his letter noted of how it is hard to make income in Kenya currently due effects of COVID-19.
Also, there is curfew in place and ban on all social gatherings hence there are no gigs to get income. He requested YouTube too to postpone their taxation for at least 8 months.
