Do Uber and Lyft tax your earnings or do they send you 1099's at the end of the year?

    Uber driver partners must file taxes as self-employment income, which differs from the taxes of traditional workers. Instead of using a W-2 to report income, self-employed professionals must use a 1099 when filing taxes. Uber driver partners fall under the rules for a 1099-K for their driving services and a 1099-MISC for any other payouts (e.g. new city bonuses, mentoring, referral fees, etc.).

    Uber and Lyft do not take your taxes out, you have to do that yourself. I learned the hard way.

    They send you a 1099.  I think if you made over $600 or something.   You file it like you are an inependent contractor.
