Income tax in Canada
Requirements for drivers
The Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA) requires that you file income tax each year. We want to make sure you feel prepared when tax time comes. Learn how taxes work and what it means for drivers.
As an Uber partner, you’re self-employed. This means you won’t receive a T4 slip from Uber and it’s your responsibility to pay your income tax at tax time. This is because income tax will not have been deducted from the income you made with Uber throughout the year.
We want to help drivers understand and meet their tax obligations. Important tax information—from earnings to potential expenses—is available on your Tax Summary on your Uber profile.
Remember, your tax situation is different from everyone else’s. We encourage you to work with tax professional when filing your taxes.
