Harry here. Today, RSG senior contributor Christian Perea takes a look at TurboTax Self-Employed, one of the top options if you’re looking to self-file your taxes and reviews how it works, how much you can save and more!
Dealing with taxes as a rideshare driver can seem intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be. Our 2017 survey showed that 54% of our readers “self-file” their rideshare taxes, and many of them use online filing services to do so.
This year, we’ve partnered with TurboTax and QuickBooks Self-Employed to walk you through the filing process. If you end up using our link, you’ll save $20 when you file your taxes and score a year of QuickBooks Self-Employed for free (it’s usually $10/month).
The best version of TurboTax for rideshare drivers is TurboTax Self-Employed since it’s tailored towards independent contractors. So if you drive for Uber or Lyft or deliver for Postmates or DoorDash, this is the product you may want to use. We’ve been testing it out over the past few weeks and found it makes filing taxes pretty painless, and has some cool features like SmartLook (Live Help) and bank account syncing via ExpenseFinder™ that make it stand out from its competitors.
