Are Weathertech mats deductible for an Uber Driver outside of the mileage deduction?

As an Uber driver during the winter, Weathertech mats were the best option to keep car clean.  Is this deductible on top of the mileage deduction?

Yes, you would be able to deduct Weathertech Mats, as this could easily be considered an ordinary and necessary expense for your business. However, this would also be part of the maintenance of a vehicle so you would not be able to deduct it on top of the Standard Mileage Deduction.  You would need to enter actual expenses to deduct the Mats.
