Special tax rules for educational content

In some countries, when you sell your product, you are required to pay local taxes. These taxes are paid by the buyer and collected by tax authorities, according to the tax law of each location.

In certain locations, some product formats or content categories are subject to different tax rules. This is the case for products that have educational content.

On the platform, you can define whether your product has educational content in the product's settings. However, once you change this setting, you cannot change it back.



  • The definition of your product's content type is your full and sole responsibility; 
  • By indicating that your product has educational content, you certify that this information is true and agree to submit evidence of this fact if requested by Hotmart; 
  • Failure to comply with this request may lead to suspension of your account, cancellation of your registration, termination of your license to use the Platform, or other applicable measures, as specified in our Terms of Use.
