H&R Block partners with Uber to offer drivers discounts

H&R Block is offering Uber drivers a variety of discounts on tax preparation and advisory services.

Uber drivers in the U.S. will receive a $25 discount on tax prep service or free Tax Identity Shield if they file in a Block office, or discounts of up to 35 percent off tax prep if they file with H&R Block Online.

Drivers can also use H&R Block’s TaxEdge iOS app to prepare and file taxes through a mobile device. The service is integrated with Uber’s software app to sync drivers’ 1099 data into the return. TaxEdge charges $199 to file both a federal and state return.

Block professionals also will be at Uber Greenlight locations to talk to drivers about tax topics for Uber drivers such as SE tax, deductions, quarterly payments and options for filing. (Uber drivers are independent contractors.)
