Patreon - VATMOSS?

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 8, 2015, 3:54 PM


Hey everyone, not really coming up with bad news or something. Just worries; for instance that Patreon has a (I only saw this recently) new form. 
So, I thought it was another form to prove you are a 'real' person behind Patreon. Well, no this time they ask me to fill out a form for the IRS - I looked more into it, it is called: "vat Moss"

now, I went searching online and I found the one creepy thing after the other. Meaning any "donations" you receive as a help to start your project becomes your "income"
I can't have an income at the moment, disability, for now... 

So, I'm very confused as I read this: 

"The law applies to “broadcasting, telecommunications, and e-services that are electronically supplied”. The e-services definition applies to a surprising number of things, including images or text, such as photos, screensavers, e-books and other digitised documents e.g. PDF files, music, films and games, including games of chance and gambling games, and of programmes on demand, online magazines, website supply or web hosting services, distance maintenance of programmes and equipment, supplies of software and software updates, advertising space on a website..." -> sourcelemmasoft.renai.us/forums/view… )

Of course, I started to panic. So, what is this? I'm not allowed to work on my projects anymore? Does this mean when finally the project is starting, I have to resign it? I can't stream anymore? 
I mailed Patreon and I still haven't gotten an answer. So in meantime, my Patreon has been temporary shut down. I know it might mean I have to completely 'shut' it down.

Though, I called my freelance bureau and they had no idea what even 'Patreon' is and this new Tax law. But filling this form will tell my state that I have a 'job' - this will cause a lot of troubles for someone who's in treatment. 

To be honest, I don't know what to do about this. I can't get commissions anymore? Comic's? Its all done? 

Can anyone help me with this? Giving me answers and solutions; I mailed Patreon a week ago and I still have no answer. I guess they don't mind losing an artist that has less than 1K donations. 


I just want to know what I am dealing with. 

Reasons why I got Patreon is because barely anyone is interested in commissions, unless when I write my busts down in the cheapest price. I understand it's hard for "everyone" - trust me, it's the same with me. I got Patreon so I could finally work on this comic. So I could have a bit more free time instead of whining how I never get any commissions. 

I'm just not lately feeling well when it comes to commission request; I get sometimes impossible requests that I have to say "no" to the commissioner. I'm lately not good in drawing +18 art; though I know they sell. But most people ask my character: "Sahtori" to be ... "under" it. This is making me hate my character, really, this is why "Carrie Phox" is gone. Because of the same requests. 

I start to see them as "porn" characters while I told myself that I wouldn't do this to my current character. She represents me; just like you all have your own character to show the world what you'd love to be, your weaknesses your strength. Having "Sahtori" acting like a little sl*t or wh*re is not part of my personality. Hence I refuse these drawings. I am deeply sorry. 

I want to show more and with Patreon I thought I was finally achieving this. I'm feeling pretty down about it and my hand is blocking again, for a moment I threw the towel into the ring until just a moment ago. I am asking now from all of you. "What is this, what can I do?"

Be safe

- Kay

I was taking a look through my favorites gallery and noticed much of your artwork isn't showing up anymore. Why did you store so many of your deviations? :( I miss your art already... :tears:
