1. So our friend made $70k plus- let us assume the $ amount is $72,000 with Cash tips// to earn it he drove online miles of 93,354 miles (57,724+35,630)- so his gross mile per earning is about 77 cents per mile. Assuming his dead miles is about 20% - his dead gross miles are about another 18,670 miles. So his dead- miles gross is about 64 cents Per miles ($72,000/(93354+18670)). IRS Deduction is about 54 cents so his mileage deduction is about $60,492 -and his other expenses for break and tires for the 112k miles could be another $1k- so for taxable income is about $11k- he need to pay SS and Medicare on this-> that would be another 15.3% so after SS-Medicare income is about $9.3k ( $11K-$1.6K @ 15.3% SS and Medicare). Taxable income is $9k folks 2. Our friend has driven a total 5,836 rides- so his earning per ride is about $12.33. Nothing flashy about this- most of us average $11-$12 per ride on any given date. The $12.33 also includes tips and promotions-> none of these are guaranteed income. If we take 10% for App and Cash Tips and 15% for promotions then amount will be about $9.25. 3. Our friend has not told us the total number of hours he worked in 2018-based on his screen shot for earlier weeks- it seems he is usually on line 65 hours a week- on 52 weeks he should be on line for 3,380 hours on line- based on his reported earnings of $72k- his gross hourly wage comes out to be about $21.30// He also have driven about 112k miles- at 35 miles per gallon and at $2.30 per gallon – his fuel cost will be about $7,361- his other costs for brake and tires will be $1,000-and employment tax of SS and Medicare$1.6k will be $62,039($72k-$7.2K Gas-$1k other)// so his net-earning per hour based on 65 hours working FOR 3,380 HOURS -> $18.35// 4. If I take the car depreciation into account which will be about 4.44 cents per miles -( assuming he bought a car for $10k and will be able to drive 225k miles). The depreciation of car will cost his net at point 3 to be reduced by another $4,929 (112,024 miles*.044 Per Miles)= His net after depreciation is now $57k ($62.2K-4.9K)= so his net-earning per hour based on 65 hours working FOR 3,380 HOURS -> $16.89 5. So my friend are you really killing it like you believe // You are working 7 days a week –to earn $16.89 an hour- please face it –the quicker you face it – the better of we all are.
