How do I enter my expenses from my Uber Tax Summary in TurboTax Online?

SOLVEDby TurboTaxTurboTax Online322Updated January 10, 2022

It's easy to enter the expenses from your Uber Tax Summary into TurboTax Self-Employed and TurboTax Live Self-Employed.

Certain Uber expenses need to be combined and entered as a single amount in TurboTax.

To review your Uber expenses:

  1. Sign in to Uber.com.
  2. Select the Tax Information tab at the top.
  3. Go to the Tax Documents section and Download your Yearly Summary for 2021.
  4. Your Yearly Summary will have several expense categories (like Tolls, Black Car Fund, Safe Rides Fee). Each category will have an amount shown for the year.
  1. Open your return. (To do this, sign in to TurboTax and select Pick up where you left off.)
  2. Using the search tool in the upper right, search for self-employed expenses (use this exact term) and select the Jump to link in the search results
  3. This will take you to the Did you have any self-employment income or expenses? screen. Answer Yes and continue through the interview to enter your Uber work
    • If you land on the Your 2021 self-employed work summary screen instead, select Edit next to your rideshare driving work. If you haven't added your Uber work yet, select Add another line of work to enter this info
  4. Answer any questions until you come to the Here's your Rideshare driving info page
  5. In the Expenses section, select Start beside each category to enter your expenses (use the table below for guidance)

Miscellaneous expenses

It’s perfectly okay to enter Miscellaneous Expenses. As a self-employed person, you'll typically have some expenses that don’t quite fit into the expense categories listed on tax forms. In this case you definitely want to add your own labels for certain expenses.

To add miscellaneous expenses:

  1. Select Other miscellaneous expenses from the What kind of expenses did you have... screen
  2. You can then give a name and amount to each miscellaneous expense that you have
    • You can group several expenses together under one name as appropriate
  • In some cases, you'll combine several related expenses into a single amount and enter the total in Turbotax
  • It’s okay if you don’t have all of these expenses — just focus on the ones you do have
