Partners who drive or act as couriers on the Uber platform are classified as independent contractors. As an independent contractor, your taxes are not withheld by the federal or state government. This means that it is your responsibility to file taxes at the end of each year. The Tax Information tab on your partner dashboard (partners.uber.com) will provide everything you need to file your taxes as an independent contractor.
Uber does not provide tax advice. We recommend that you seek guidance from a qualified tax service like TurboTax and/or contact an independent tax professional for specific answers to tax questions. You can also check out the IRS website for more information.
