Happy New Year everybody,

Either "I'll get to work on that" or "I'm already working on that."

I've never heard it without it being contracted: I'm on it!

Happy new year to you as well!

I've heard it without the contraction for emphasis, Barbara. Slight emphasis on the "on."

"You don't have to worry about that. I am on it."

'I Am On It'?

“I am on it” is an informal, often exclamatory (!) way of saying you are going to do or start something. For example:


Boss: Who wants to take on this project?

Employee: I’m on it!


“I am on it” can also be used to refer to a subject. For instance:


Boss: Who is working on Project A?

Employee: I am on it.

I'm on it. = I'm taking care of it. = I'm handling it. = I'll take care of it right away. = I'll take care of it immediately.
