I don’t drive for U/L, but my understanding is that the gross amount that they show is what the riders paid, including all fees. You show that on your Schedule C and then deduct their fees to get your gross, and then deduct your mileage and other expenses. These include any extras you provide to riders like water. If you get more than the normal amount of car washes (say over once a week) to keep your car clean for clients, a case could be made for that deduction. Maybe @UberTaxPro will comment. I hijacked his thread. ?Thanks for the input! I’m guessing the year end statement will only include my deposits, correct? So I write off mileage at the current rate against the deposits, and that’s all? I don’t pay for my cell phone (my other job provides my phone). What else can I reasonably write off? Thanks!
