Taxes and Finance

Tax season doesn’t need to be stressful. Roo is committed to helping our users navigate tax season as independent contractors to ensure you come out a winner.

First thing’s first: Roo tracks all the income you’ve earned through our platform to make tax filing easy. If you’ve made over $600 this year, Roo will automatically issue a single 1099 form at the end of the year with all your Roo relief income in one place, no legwork necessary!

Make sure you’re taking advantage of tax write-offs! As a 1099 contractor, there’s so much you can take advantage of to reduce your tax burden each year. More info on this below.

FAQ

At Roo, our goal is to make relief work easy for veterinarians, and that includes providing significant help with your taxes as an independent contractor. Roo's platform automatically keeps track of your hours and earnings to help you file your taxes each year. When you first sign up, our tax center will automatically issue a W-9. If your earnings add up to over $600 in a single year, Roo will provide a single 1099 form that covers all relief income you earned through our platform for the calendar year. We even track your mileage, which can be applied as a tax write-off. For answers to more specific tax questions, see our 1099 FAQ above. Additionally, we have a partnership with Fit Money CPA to support you with any tax needs that go beyond our expertise.
