Many people know uber consider us drivers as self employed and they don't tell us how to work or where to work or when.. we'll as I came to find out this last 2 weeks.. Withtout you knowing, Uber is actually telling us how to work and pay close attention to the experiment I did..

UberPool and UberX are available at larger markets (e.g LA, NY, SF, MIA, etc) as some drivers have notice before, there has been a rider once in a while who wants to get another Uber and you are the closest driver (literally parked outside) but they still get another driver that's minutes away. Weird ain't it if they claim that the closest driver gets match to you. Also if you ever check your rider app if you are driver, you will notice that UberPool and UberX drivers on screen change and some would argue that they might have room on pool with a passanger but again after testing that isn't the case since others drivers who helped with this test where in the area and didn't have passengers at all. There is a formula they aren't telling us that they use to measure when to give the driver Pool or X and technically they are telling us how to work in the market we operate. Idk but after finding this I can smell another class action lawsuit on the way..

What do you drivers think? Is it worth it for tax purposes or you rather pay the IRS yearly a ton of money back?

For the past 7 years it's been the drivers choice to either turn on the app or not turn on the app. You're fighting a losing battle.

Kermo1, what was the pint you were trying to make about being self employed or employee of Uber? You made no sense. I have not turned on my app in 6 weeks. Try not showing up for work as employee for 6 weeks and see what happens...

Turning on uber app means clock in at uber system and turning off uber app mean clock out at work.
The time uber app is on and driver follow all the rules and regulation set by uber driver is employee.

This is true. A few weeks ago I dropped off a person at the BART station in Millbrae (California). She immediately realized that she would not be able to get to her destination in time after she got out of the car and requested a ride again to her final destination...she requested it while she was sitting in the front seat of my truck. It gave her am UBER that was about 6 minutes away. She cancelled and did another request because she wanted to ride with me....same thing, but a different driver about 8 minutes away. WTF? I lost out on a 2X ride that was about 30 miles away with no traffic...I was pissed.

During a class action lawsuit brought by drivers, Uber said that in no way do they tell us how to work or where to work or which service request to accept.. yes they are sending request your way but they choose which ones which technically proves their earlier argument wrong. As to your app off, most likely you will have been logged off and a message to contact them will appear

Kemo1 They most certainly push certain rides to other drivers for sure. Its a scam and if your lucky you may have a few good months as long as you follow there orders and take most rides pool and x.

You ever have potential passenger sitting in the seat next to you request a ride, and have that request go to a driver who's a mile or more away? That happened to me twice last month.

They had a feature that if you returned to the staging area in less than an hour after a pick up, drivers won't have to wait for another request forever since they would be bumped to the front of the queue.. that's why short trips were a good way to stay busy but as of December 19, 2016 they removed that feature due to people complaining

And you come back at a lower pay scale...if you come back to drive again. Right?
Yes and no.. the pay will stay the same but the percentage they take is more now.. I heard that in San Diego they are keeping 35% of the trip to them and this is a pilot program.. hopefully it doesn't come to LA

You're better off tax wise being an IC. You just need to treat this as a business and not just another gig. Keep records and take ALL legitimate deductions.
