Getting donations and advertising revenue for playing video games
You get money in the form of donations, gifts, advertising revenue, etc., for playing video games on platforms such as Twitch.
You probably have tax obligations, since amounts received for business activities conducted through a digital platform (such as financial compensation, earnings or prizes) may be considered income.
You may also be considered self-employed.
Generally speaking, you have to report your income from the digital economy.
If you are considered self-employed, you must include your business income in your income tax return.
You must also check whether you are required to register for the GST and QST.
