Where do i declare hobby income ?

Where do i declare hobby income ?

If you earn income from a hobby. The CRA would consider this as "Self-Employment" income for tax purposes.


Therefore you would fill out the "Self-Employment" form under the "Income" tab - You will need to know the "type" of service provided and apply an industry code to the form.

If you do not have a name for the "business" just put in your name and address. 


Please see the video, as well as other links below to assist with your Self-Employment entries,(note that these entries as SE can be accessed through all editions of the software):
