“What is circulating about a new tax is untrue,” Abu Ali told a meeting with social media geeks and influencers. He said that the income and sales tax department is an executive branch of government, which implements state mandates.

The department stated earlier that all social media influencers, or anyone who generates revenues from social media is subject to the law, be it the income tax law, or the general tax law on sales.

The department had called on all social media activists, who make money from their activity on social media to voluntarily declare their status and income to avoid fines, or legal measures against them.

Article 3 of Income Tax Law number 34 of the year 2014 stipulates that any income generated in the Kingdom, or earned by any person therein shall be subject to tax regardless of the place of payment.
