    Uber isn't responsible for your individual tax return. It's up to you to track and record your deductible expenses, just part of being an adult and in business for yourself.;)

    Uber does, but only the miles driven with a passenger. Uber doesn't include miles driven TO the passenger.

    Correct. This is why most folks use a 3rd party mileage tracker. I used mileIQ but hated that everytime I stopped and parked inbetween rides it would end that "trip." Not a big deal as the mileage tracker starts up again when I move, but for convenience sake it would be nice to have it keep running until I stole it I'm done. Either way didn't what to pay so went to just writing down Odometer readings and transferring to excel.

    You should check out my tracker comparison thread (click here). Triplog had one of the worst accuracy rates. It's shaving a ton of miles off your log and deduction.
