    Can anyone refer me to an accountant, in LA or OC, who is good with Uber deductions specifically? My accountant of many years has retired. Thanks in advance.
  3. Advice
    I just received the tax form 1099K from Lyft but it shows, as my income, more than double of what actually went into my bank account. It’s my own car therefore i don’t have to deduct any rental amount. Why? In actuality i am only taking home, including tips, 46% of what they charge the pax...

    This is probably an old issue, sorry in advance but my search of the boards was fruitless I stopped driving last March after a pax attacked me early in the covid crisis + Lyft/police shrugged it off.

    If every state did this, especially with back taxes and penalties, they'd be gone. If the IRS came after them too it'd be awesome. https://news.bloomberglaw.com/daily-labor-report/uber-hit-with-650-million-employment-tax-bill-in-new-jersey

    I just became an Uber driver over the weekend, I've only done a few trips and made about a total of 70 dollars. I was told that if I made over 600$ I have to file 1099 form to the IRS, where do I get the form? What do I write on it? How do I submit it?

    Lol! It's that time of year and we all know, tax time! I remember the day I went into his office and told him I'm doing Uber as a job (now side hustle with primary Lyft) and he never heard of them.

  16. UberEATS
    Hello, I'm new to Uber (just started UberEats delivery last August 2018). I found this forum after I got my 1099-MISC from Uber and was really disappointed with the script-reading support staff at Uber. Maybe someone here who delivers UberEats can help explain my 1099-MISC (I don't qualify for...

    So I’m trying to do Uber taxes and I opted out to receive it in electronic form. When I go to my taxes tab on Uber page it’s not giving me 1099- MISC form, but just a summary tax document. When I tried Turbotax I get to 1099-MISC, but I don’t have it. So how am I supposed to do it on my own...
