    Are H & R Block suitable for Uber tax returns?

    I'm doing my tax and usually use H & R Block, I've never done a tax return since driving Uber and I've read about some drivers not getting proper returns because of bad accountants so thought it might be worth checking if H & R are okay for doing GST and Tax returns for taxi drivers.

    Missing five-cent payments can add up to big money: hunt 'em down

    If you provided your ABN to Uber, you remain eligible to receive a payment of five cents for each booking fee of 55 cents to compensate you for the GST payable on the booking fee. Uber completely recoups the booking fee from you so this compensation payment is important. You will find that...

    GST passed on for drivers to absorb

    Just got told by Uber that they won't be charging GST for my riders and that I will have to pay GST from when I started. All of us could therefore possibly face a few $1000 GST bill very soon while effectively earning 10% less. Any opinions?
