How do I file my taxes at the end of the year?

Find information regarding tax obligations.

When working on the Spotwork platform, you are considered an independent contractor. Spotwork does not withhold taxes or deductions on any of your earnings through the app. 

Therefore, it is your responsibility to declare this income at the end of the year when you file your income taxes. Because of this, we recommend saving a minimum of 20% of your earnings in order to avoid any surprise expenses during tax season. 

Important Dates

In Canada, the deadline to file your taxes for the 2022 period is April 30th, 2023. In the United States, the deadline for the 2022 period is April 18th, 2023. 

Does Spotwork Provide Tax Documentation?
