Our team has worked hard with legal experts and regulatory bodies to provide clarity on how using Scoop would be viewed from a tax and visa perspective. It has been determined that the reimbursement amount drivers receive through Scoop is not considered reportable income by the IRS.
Therefore, we do not provide any tax forms such as a 1099 at the end of the year since there is no income to report.
If you hold a visa (such as an H-1B) to work at your current employer and have questions about whether you can drive in a Scoop carpool, you can see everything we know about this topic in the blog post from our CEO right here.
This tax discussion is included for general information only and is not intended to be legal or tax advice to you. We recommend you consult a lawyer or other appropriate professional if you want legal, business or tax advice.
