Rideshare Taxes – Lyft
Rideshare drivers are considered independent contractors and have to report the earnings as such. On one hand, it may be a daunting task, on the other hand, online tax preparation software, such as TurboTax is well prepared to guide drivers to maximize their business profits.
Many Americans earn extra income by driving for Lyft and the company teamed up with TurboTax to offer its drivers an option to file taxes and get the product cheaper. The software will come with a discount, which typically depends on the TurboTax version. It appears that the most appropriate version for rideshare drivers is TurboTax Self-Employed.
How to get a discount on TurboTax if I am a Lyft driver?
In order to get the deal that Lyft worked out with TurboTax, you have to log in to your account first. Go to your Driver Dashboard and click on Tax Information.
Important: make sure to access TurboTax through Driver Dashboard. If you go directly to the TurboTax website, the deal won’t work and the support team at TurboTax will not be able to apply the deal retroactively.
What’s the current TurboTax deal for Lyft drivers?
There are two options to file your taxes at the moment. Both are related to the Self-Employed version, but one is the regular version where you file the tax returns on your own. The other one is called TurboTax Live Self-Employed where a tax expert is available to answer some of your tax questions (you continue filing on your own) or you can transfer all your tax documents and the tax expert will prepare the taxes for you.
Currently, you can file Federal taxes for free using TurboTax Self-Employed, or get 50% of federal filing when using TurboTax Live Self-Employed. Both deals are in place until 4/15/21.
Filing taxes is not something most of us look forward to, but it is important to dedicate it enough time to get the maximum refund. Self-employed individuals have the opportunity to lower their tax bill by taking advantage of deductions specifically geared towards them. The more planning, preparation and tracking of cost you do, the better the chances of lowering of your tax bill. These steps are crucial in case of an IRS audit.
