Like with any income, it’s important to be aware of any financial and tax obligations that may apply to your Airtasker earnings. If you’re earning an income from providing services through Airtasker then you need to pay tax on that income.
All of this income may be taxable, per your local tax authority’s regulations. We recommend contacting a tax professional to get advice on what applies to your situation. You’ll need to keep an accurate record of all your Airtasker activities and the amounts you earn from those tasks and disclose it as business income on your tax return. Remember to record the gross amount (task price) that customers (posters) pay you, not the net amount you receive after the Service Fee is removed.
Depending on your location, earnings and personal circumstances, your tax obligations may be different. It’s important to be diligent and research what applies specifically to you, using an authorized source. If you are required to make any report on your Airtasker income for tax purposes, it’s important that you accurately disclose everything.
