Disclaimer: As independent contractors, Drivers have the responsibility to keep track of their earnings and to accurately report them in their tax filings. Skipcart does not provide a break down of your total earnings between base pay, tips, pay boosts, milestones, etc. Any questions about what you have to report on your taxes should be directed to a tax professional, as Skipcart cannot provide you with tax advice. You are also free to conduct your own research, as there are many publicly available articles online, such as this one from TurboTax. Please note that we cannot verify the accuracy of the content contained in this article or any other publicly available sources of information and again, we advise you to seek the advice of a tax professional if you have further questions.
Taxes are not withheld automatically and Skipcart calculates the subtotal of the Drivers earnings based on date earnings were deposited and is not based on the date the Drivers completed the deliveries.
