Taxi Business Operators (Including Drivers for Companies Such as Uber and Eva)
If you operate a taxi business in Québec, you must be registered for the GST and QST, regardless of the amount of your annual taxable sales. You must be registered before transporting your first passenger for remuneration.
You must also file a GST and QST return for each reporting period.
For more information, see GST/HST and QST.
Special rules regarding the GST and QST apply to drivers who are related to a transportation system operator under agreement and who operate a taxi business. For more information, see Drivers Related to a Transportation System Operator Under Agreement.
Since January 1, 2021, $0.90 in dues must be collected on all trips subject to the dues. The dues are in addition to the fare and must be listed separately on bills given to customers.
For more information on reporting your income and the deductions you may be entitled to, see document IN-155-V, Business and Professional Income.
If you held a taxi driver's permit or a taxi owner's permit, see the Tax Credits section for information on the tax credits for taxi drivers and taxi owners that you may be entitled to.
On December 1, 2020, we began phasing in mandatory billing measures for the remunerated passenger transportation sector in order to restore healthy competition and ensure tax fairness.
As an operator of a taxi business, you have until November 1, 2021, to begin giving customers a paper or electronic bill at the end of each trip.
