If you’re a taxi driver living in Québec, you can claim a refundable tax credit (up to a maximum of $569) by using the TP-1029.9.V form if:
- you held a taxi driver’s permit but not a taxi owner’s permit at some point during the year or
- you held a taxi driver’s permit and a taxi owner’s permit on December 31st, and for the portion of the year you held a taxi owner’s permit, you paid for less than 90% of the fuel costs for each taxi covered by a permit
If you’re a taxi owner or a member of a partnership that holds a taxi owner's permit in Québec, you can use the TP-1029.9.V form to claim a tax credit as long as you held at least one taxi owner’s permit on December 31st and you paid for 90% or more of the fuel costs for each taxi covered by a permit. The maximum credit you can receive is $569 per permit.
Note: If your taxi owner’s permit was issued in more than one person’s name, you’ll need to choose one person to be the sole permit holder on the TP-1029.9.V to claim the tax credit.
