Can you deduct and write-off a lease payment if you drive for Uber? (as a business expense)
The Guru Take
Yes, you can.
Since you are using your car for running a business (essentially), you can. If you own the car, you would depreciate the value of the car. If you lease the car, you can deduct the lease payments. Other business expenses can also be deductible.
Remember that most drivers deduct the actual mileage driven. Make sure to consult your tax professoinal to confirm.
