Self-employment can have complicated tax implications. This tool can help self-employed workers calculate their estimated tax payments.
Likely, yes! The IRS requires all workers who meet an income requirement to pay taxes. For rideshare drivers, this income threshold is $400. If you earn more than $400 from all your platform/self-employment work (Uber, Lyft, etc.) then you must report your earnings to the IRS. Even if you don’t meet this requirement, you may have to file taxes if you have other income.
Colleges and universities can be valuable partners for Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) and tax credit outreach efforts. However, college campuses are more than just a source for volunteers or computers. Colleges have community recognition and relationships that can deepen the work of free tax filing programs.
