    UberEats 1099-MISC Confusion

    Hello, I'm new to Uber (just started UberEats delivery last August 2018). I found this forum after I got my 1099-MISC from Uber and was really disappointed with the script-reading support staff at Uber. Maybe someone here who delivers UberEats can help explain my 1099-MISC (I don't qualify for...

    Anybody doing taxes yet? I’m confused.

    So I’m trying to do Uber taxes and I opted out to receive it in electronic form. When I go to my taxes tab on Uber page it’s not giving me 1099- MISC form, but just a summary tax document. When I tried Turbotax I get to 1099-MISC, but I don’t have it. So how am I supposed to do it on my own...

    On line miles

    Uber, beginning this tax season is including ON LINE miles rather than DELIVERY miles. What you must do is keep the app on line. Even if they set you off line for not accepting pings, go back on line until you are at least to your hangout location, or the corresponding miles to your hangout if...

    TurboTax Deluxe CD

    Once again Intuit has made it easy and relatively cheap to file your taxes. The CD version of TurboTax Deluxe has everything you need, including Schedules C and SE. It’s not necessary to buy the more expensive versions labeled for “Home and Business” or “Self Emplyoyed.” I’m only familiar with...

    Tax Time

    As tax time is drawing near, I think I read somewhere that Uber beginning this year will be sending us not only our mileage for pickup to delivery, but also our full mileage for the entire time that we have been online. Does anyone know for sure? It would be nice if they did because I could...

    This is the first time I ever had ha 1099 anything and just did it as a side hustle and didn’t really think about tracking expenses and such.

    I've been doing Uber for a year and this will be my first time filling taxes for them. Is there any recommendation on a great tax preparation place/person. I keep all my records, record my mileage in a log book. Just need a person that can get me the most back and doesn't charge an arm and a leg.

    Rideshare tax specialist or CPA?

    Any clues on how to find the best recordkeeping, tax filing advice? Key word search shows a lot of info on this from 2016. Bah-humbug. I'm thinking I might get a CPA's help once, and see how they organize and arrange...and do my own work after. But maybe there are tax magicians to be found. I...

    Noobie question, buy vs lease

    I am looking seriously at driving for Uber/Lyft. My current vehicle (Honda Element) is not acceptable to either. So I will have to get a vehicle that is. The question is, particularly considering taxes, which is better -- buying or leasing? Assuming the vehicle is used exclusively for...
