Every Canadian social media influencer and content creator earning income – from brand partnerships to channel subscriptions – is mandated by the Canada Revenue Agency (“CRA”) to ensure they are fulfilling tax obligations. Recent reports of the CRA cracking down on unreported earnings emphasize the importance and expensive consequences for failing to accurately track your income and related expenses.

To help you navigate the required CRA registrations and mandatory filings, we have created a Tax Checklist for Social Media Influencers & Content Creators. Whether you are a Twitch streamer, YouTuber, or Tik Tok personality, this easy-to-use tool is specifically designed to assist in gathering all of the documentation necessary to prepare and file your annual tax return(s).

Wondering if you’ve got everything covered? We’re here to help. Our expert team of business management and tax professionals can optimize the business-side of your social media career so that you can focus on creating the best content possible.
