    Uber/Lyft's downfall?

    If every state did this, especially with back taxes and penalties, they'd be gone. If the IRS came after them too it'd be awesome.

    How much city business license tax did you pay?

    How do I pay taxes to the IRS as an Uber driver?

    I just became an Uber driver over the weekend, I've only done a few trips and made about a total of 70 dollars. I was told that if I made over 600$ I have to file 1099 form to the IRS, where do I get the form? What do I write on it? How do I submit it?

    My tax guy said “anyone driving for Uber or Lyft is an idiot”

    Lol! It’s that time of year and we all know, tax time! I remember the day I went into his office and told him I’m doing Uber as a job (now side hustle with primary Lyft) and he never heard of them. Fast forward to 2019 and my tax guy said he now prepares hundreds of taxes for people that include...

    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.

    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...
