📰Big Changes for Social Media Users: Tax on Twitter Income!📢

In a surprising twist, experts reveal that the money people earn from platforms like X (formerly Twitter) will now be considered as income under the GST law. This means that if you make money from ads on X, you might need to pay a 18% tax. But hold on, there’s a catch! This tax only applies if your total earnings from different sources like rent, interest, and other services go beyond Rs 20 lakh in a year.

🔍 Who’s in the Spotlight? 🔦

If you’re wondering if this applies to you, listen up. If your yearly income from things like rent, interest, and other services crosses Rs 20 lakh, you might have to pay this new tax. This rule is similar to when you have to get a Goods and Services Tax (GST) registration if you earn a lot of money.
