Ride-sourcing Drivers and Tax

The Australian Taxation Office [ATO] is holding free webinars on Wednesday, 15 July 2015 concerning the GST and income tax treatment of ride-sourcing drivers from 01 August 2015.  They will be effectively treated by the ATO like licensed taxi cab drivers.  See this link to the ATO website for registration to the webinars:https://www.ato.gov.au/Tax-professionals/Newsroom/Income-tax/Webinar---ride-sourcing-and-tax/?tpissue-26-2015



Where taxpayers use Registered Tax Agents to lodge their tax returns, they have the benefit of extended lodgement due dates to lodge their income tax returns.  The major lodgement date for the 2014 tax returns is 15 May 2015.  As this date is fast approaching, I recommend taxpayers immediately gather their data and make appointments with their tax agents.

Where prior arrangements are not made with the Australian Taxation Office, they may apply penalties where returns are not lodged on time and income tax is payable.
