If a tier has multiple benefits and sales tax weights, Patreon will calculate tax for each benefit individually for the patron’s location. If one or more of the benefits are taxed, tax is applied only to the portioned amount of the benefit. Since not all benefits are taxable in all patron locations, customizing the tax weights may reduce the amount of the pledge that is taxable.
Value can be challenging to determine, so we’ve put together a few examples of what weighting might look like based on what you offer, that you can review below. The benefits added to the tier are only visible to you, the creator. Your patrons will not see these benefits or their weighting on their end.
Please note that these are just a small set of examples. You have the ability to customize your tax weights in any way you see fit, based on the benefits you are offering. For more details on sales tax settings, please visit this .
