The Uber partner's tax guide
Everything you need to know
The 1099 form
Find your tax documents
Every Uber partner receives a monthly tax statement. And if you earn $600 or more during the year, you’ll also receive a 1099 tax form by January 31.
The 1099 form includes how much you made, what fees Uber took out, and how many miles you drove while on the app. Always wait until you receive your 1099 before filing your taxes.
Don’t forget deductions
Speak with a tax advisor to see which business costs you can claim full or partial deductions for:
- Vehicle costs like depreciation, lease payments, gas, tune-ups, registration, car washes, new tires, etc.
- Car insurance
- Tolls or parking costs
- Your phone and phone plan
- Uber fees
- Freebies for riders, like water or candy
- Accounting and bank costs
Plan, save, pay
Track your earnings and expenses
Intuit, maker of TurboTax, offers every Uber partner access to a free version of Quickbooks Self Employed. This software makes it easy to track earnings, miles, and expenses throughout the year so you’re better prepared for tax time.
With Quickbooks, you can pay estimated taxes quarterly instead of waiting until tax season. Plus, integration with TurboTax Online makes filing your taxes easy.
