Hi! I made just over $600 with Uber this summer and only received a yearly summary. Will I get a 1099? Or how should I proceed with the yearly summary?

Hi! I made just over $600 with Uber this summer and only received a yearly summary. Will I get a 1099? Or how should I proceed with the yearly summary?

A company should issue independent contractors earning more than $600.  Uber generally does issue them along with a 1099-K, however, all of the information you need may be in the yearly summary.

Even if you do not get one you will still need to file a return if you earned more than $400 in self-employment income. Since you are self-employed, you should be tracking your income and expenses and can easily file your return using the information you have.  TurboTax has added a great feature this year for Uber and Lyft drivers.  

To enter your Uber  income 

  1.      Click on Federal
  2.      Income & Expenses
  3.     Scroll Down to Self-Employment and click 
  4.     Click Start next to Income and Expenses
  5.     Answer YES to “Did you have any self-employment income or expenses”
  6.     When you Enter Uber or Lyft when it asks you to “Tell us the type of self-employment work you do” TurboTax will customize your interview and will make it easy to enter all of your information.
