Uber and Lyft Drivers End of Year Maintenance Tax Credit Reminder
For all the ride share drivers out there I’d like to take this time to say 'thank you'. It’s probably a thankless job because people often take it for granted. Getting from point A to B has become convenient especially when driving yourself is a problem. It has been helpful for me on countless occasions.
Ride share drivers should be recording their mileages and keeping all their vehicle fuel and maintenance records. We are just a few days away from the end of the year and thought this would be a good time to remind drivers, you can get a tax credit for fuel and maintenance as part of the cost of doing business. This can help you with your taxes and add a little money back into your pocket. Just a simple tip which can save you money.
Keeping your vehicle in the best shape possible would be ideal if you are a ride share provider. Routine preventative maintenance can reduce overall vehicle cost through the year and most importantly help to keep your passengers safe.
I had overheard a story about an Uber driver who was involved in a car accident, the passenger was injured, and the driver was sued by the passenger's attorney for negligence because after investigation they found the driver didn’t maintain his vehicle properly.
