Where can I find my Uber 1099?
Nervous that you haven’t received your Uber 1099s yet? Don’t worry — if it’s before January 31st, 2017, you’re right on track.
Companies that work with contractors — like Uber, Lyft, Postmates, and other on-demand companies — aren’t required to send out their 1099s until January 31st of the year after the work was performed.
This means that if you did work for Uber in 2016, you’ll receive your 1099s on or before the 31st of January, 2017.
Uber will make your 1099s available in 2 different ways:
1) Via your Uber partner account
You can find your tax information online in your partner account, or in your Driver app. Here's how you can access it on a computer:
1. Login to your account here
2. On the left hand side of your Uber Rewards Dashboard, select “Partner Earnings”
3. At the top of the page, select "Tax Information"
4. Download your 1099s and Yearly Summary to your computer
You can also find your 1099s in your Driver app by going to Rewards → Manage money and taxes → Tax Information. From there, you can opt in to electronic delivery. This link should take you there.
2) In the mail
Keep an eye out for your 1099 at the address you gave to Uber!
Why didn’t I receive a 1099-MISC?
You likely didn’t receive one if you didn’t earn any income from bonuses, referrals, or promotions.
Note: If you received non-fare income, but didn’t receive a 1099-MISC--you still have to report that income on your taxes!
