QST & Taxes

All drivers must have GST and QST sales tax numbers to drive with Uber. You can obtain your tax numbers through Uber’s tax information form.

Uber will collect and pay your GST and QST sales tax for every trip. You will still need to report your sales tax once per year.

Drivers are still required to declare and pay their personal income taxes.

A sales tax rebate will be added to your weekly earnings, this rebate will reflect business expenses like vehicle maintenance or gas.

Full tax information can be found here.

Insurance Requirements

Uber drivers in Quebec are automatically insured through Intact Insurance. Links to policy information can be found here.

You should check with your personal insurance provider to make sure you are covered while operating as a rideshare driver.
