Uber does not provide tax advice and is not responsible for third party offers, products and/or service. We recommend that you seek guidance from a qualified tax site or service like TurboTax or contact an independent tax professional for additional answers to tax questions. If you’d like to learn more, the IRS website has information about both the 1099-K and 1099-MISC.

Important dates

Your tax timeline

  • By January 31, 2019: Tax documents, including tax summaries and 1099s, will be available on for drivers who opted to receive documents electronically. 1099s will be mailed to drivers who did not opt in for e-delivery
  • April 15, 2019: Deadline to file Federal and State tax returns or an extension with the IRS and applicable states

Your tax documents

There are 3 types of tax documents you could receive from us:

  • Tax summary: An unofficial tax document produced by Uber and provided to every Uber driver and delivery-partner. Your tax summary includes a breakdown of annual earnings and business-related expenses that may be deductible.
  • 1099-K: An official IRS tax document that includes all on-trip gross earnings. Not all partners will receive a 1099-K. Only drivers who made more than $20,000 in customer payments and provided at least 200 rides or deliveries will receive a 1099-K. See the IRS website for more information.
  • 1099-MISC: An official IRS tax document providing a summary of promotion, referral, and other miscellaneous payments for the year. Only drivers and delivery-partners who received $600 or more of these types of payments will receive a 1099-MISC.
