What has Thanksgiving to do with this? It is a US and Canadian celebration, how can that affect EU buyers and contributors. There is a big world out there.

I have no Thanksgiving images and my sales are just a bit down from last month but we still have a few days.
Also, I have 68.66% US sales (in commission). For a better comparison, we should have access to the number of downloads too for those US sales not just the credits (without counting them one by one).

Like you said, the US market makes up nearly 70% of your sales. On some days, the US market makes up over 90% of my sales. If the biggest market is on holiday, it would only make sense if the sales are down from the previous month.

A lot "US sales" here, too (whatever that means)
Here is the trend of my US earning percentage for the past few years:

You would be pissed if you were paying 30% withholding tax.


I am pissed - no way that my 90% of sales are from us - something is wrong - and they take 30% of 90% of my sales - before AS I had 10% us sales - what happened with no us sales - something is deeply wrong here!!!!..... and unlike other  agencies, they don t send tax forms

Looks like you are on your own with this one, which is a surprise maybe the wrong thread, try reaching out to Matt and hit on him at mhayward@adobe.com

Doesn't your country have a double taxation avoidance treaty with US?
What is the level of taxes you have to pay in your country? Is it less than 30%?

Edit: If I'm not wrong, you are from Portugal and you have a tax treaty with US: https://www.congress.gov/congressional-report/104th-congress/executive-report/8/1
Taxation in Portugal is higher than 30% for income levels above 20K, anyway. Am I wrong?
