    In finalizing my mileage log for 2017 last night, I compared my logged trip count to the total the number of 'completed trips' in my Uber-provided *not-a-tax-document summary, and found it was off by about 3% and total net payments was off by about 8%, both lower than actual.

    Do Uber and LYFT send you an end of year statement like a 1099 that has your mileage or just your total income? I spoke to an accountant last year, and he said drivers make out better with claiming the mileage, and not the gas, oil changes, repairs, etc. in most cases. I have been keeping a log...
