I am a consultant & I drove for Uber. Last year, I drove 27,565 miles total of which 11,831 were Uber. 1,698 miles were the consulting. How do I show this in Turbotax?

TurboTax asks for the total mileage and then the total miles driven for everything and then the miles for business. Since these are 2 business codes how should this be done within Turbotax?

Each business will be filed separately (2 schedule C) tax forms. The mileage should then be applied to each business appropriately.

I understand the two Schedule C forms. My question relates to inputting the information in TurboTax. My total miles for the year are 27,565 with 1,600 for consulting and 11,831 for Uber. My mileage at the beginning of the year was 32,591 and when I started with Uber it was 43,533. Mileage for consulting after 09/14/2018 was 450.  My calculation is as follows Total miles driven on the consulting Schedule C = 10,942 and commuting miles = 9,342. For the Uber Schedule C, Total miles = 16,623, commuting miles = 4,342 after I remove the 450 miles I drove for consulting. Am I doing this correctly for the software?
