    Just found out ... for those who keep track of their mileage expenses, the IRS raised the mileage rate from 58.5 to 62.5 cents per mile, effective July 1st.

    Hello, I'm new to Uber (been out driving twice) so forgive me if I sound ignorant at anytime! And also forgive me because I'm sure this question has been answered 1000 times over but I just find it easier to just ask it again rather than search for it, call me lazy! Anyway, I know I'm supposed...

    I'd like to know what you guys use to keep track of everything, like mileage, and expenses! Which Apps work the best for you, or do you have another method that you think is better? I've been with Uber for 7 months now, but I've only been driving for 2 months. So I'm still a newbie! Also, I know...

    What do you do to keep your costs low? Ever since Lyft ruined the PDB for me, I have taken the following steps to reduce costs: - Stop accepting trips over 6 minutes or 1.5 miles away - Block future matches with pax who do nothing but take short rides to and from the bus stop and home - Cancel...

    I planned to sign up with Uber to utilize 40 hours a month working New Jersey. The plan called for buying a beater for $2k with another $2k for the liability insurance. With the relatively negligible car cost I would keep my fingers crossed to avoid accidents and breakdowns. I viewed this as a...

    I have been driving Uber for a while now and have been in total denial. However, I have woken up to a harsh reality that I am pushing myself into poverty. In November gas prices are rising by 19 cents a gallon. In December, my insurance rates are going from $40.61 per month plus 5.9¢ per mile to...

    Gas prices have skyrocketed in the last few weeks. I expect them to go higher still, partially due to the mess in Houston. While gas prices are still much lower than their peak (over $4 per gallon), this is effectively a pay cut for Uber/Lyft/Delivery independent-contractors (drivers), who must...

    Do you keep the fuel receipt after you lodge a BAS? ATO haven't asked me for the receipts at all.

    I'm quite used to completing my own tax returns, however this is the first year with Uber as a business. Just looking for some advice to avoid heading to a tax agent. I have put myself as a Business/Sole trader, passing the results test (no PSI rules). I've put my total income in the...

    New driver here. Excuse me if it's a repeat question. I use the Stride app to record my expenses like mileage, etc. In Stride, under Phone & Services, I'm to put the date, $ amount and then the % of the day I used my phone for work. My question is about the $ amount. ??? My cell bill is...

    Hi all, I'm new to being an Uber partner and looking for some advice. I only drive a few hours a week at the moment maybe 3 or 4 at the most and therefore the fuel I use on Uber driving doesn't ever equate to a full tank. How do you go about claiming the GST on the fuel that you do use on Uber...

    Hi All! - I'm a driver for both Lyft and Uber in the Washington D.C. area. I studied Business at school (University of Florida), and I want to treat driving like a small business. I'm interested in reading about techniques and strategies to increase profits, and decrease costs. I'm hoping to...

    The fine print of your RENTAL CAR agreement says you'll be charged $25 per contract to use: America's most expensive road. *That's $25 not including mileage* That's: 7 Miles = $42 to E-470. Don't be like me. Now I avoid E-470.
