“Sex Workers Shouldn’t Have to Pay Taxes,” Says Australia’s “Best Porn Star”

In a bold move, Billie Beever, acclaimed as Australia’s “best” porn star, has challenged the taxation system. The blonde bombshell asserted that if her profession is not deemed a “real” job, she should not be required to pay “real taxes.” This comes in the wake of online abuse and criticism she faces for her work in the adult industry.

Beever, who recently secured the title of Best Female Porn Star at the Australian Adult Industry Choice Awards, spoke exclusively to news.com.au to express her frustration with the public perception of her profession. She argues that the dismissive attitude towards her line of work fails to recognize the effort, time, and marketing involved, stating that the explicit content she produces for subscribers is akin to “charity work.”

“I’m constantly being told what I do isn’t a real job and [that] I ‘need to get a real job,’ so if that’s what the general public think, then why should us OnlyFans creators and sex workers be paying 10 times more tax than they all are with their regular jobs?” Beever questioned, emphasizing that the public’s perception is a contradiction.

The adult entertainer contends that if her work is not considered a “real job,” she should not be subjected to the same tax obligations as traditional employment. Taking to Instagram, where she boasts an impressive following of 186,000, Beever posted tongue-in-cheek stories addressing the tax dilemma: “I do believe that we shouldn’t have to pay tax because you guys all say, ‘well OnlyFans isn’t a real job, you should get a real job.’ It’s like, so what do I pay my taxes with, Monopoly money? My charity work will continue.”

The debate over the taxation of adult entertainers gained attention after a representative for the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) weighed in on the matter. On the ATO Community board, the representative stated, “It’s a new industry, and one we’re watching to better understand, but the way we see tax deductions remains the same. We see OnlyFans creators as businesses with operating expenses and deductions.”

As the debate continues, Beever remains steadfast in her demand for fair treatment, hoping to challenge the established norms surrounding the taxation of sex workers and adult entertainers.
