Intuit announced new partnerships with three companies to offer QuickBooks Online Self-Employed to their freelance workers.

Intuit is partnering with TaskRabbit, Fiverr and UpCounsel to provide their workers with a free version of the new QuickBooks Online Self-Employed software. Since its launch in January, QBO Self-Employed has tracked more than $125 million in business expenses for its freelancer users. 

TaskRabbit has a community of 30,000 micro-entrepreneur “taskers,” Fiverr’s online marketplace of members selling tasks and services number in the millions, and UpCounsel’s community matches thousands of attorneys with business owners. With access to QuickBooks Online Self-Employed software, these workers can send their data into TurboTax Online and complete year-end taxes.  

“The fact is that the on-demand economy is a disruptive trend that has exposed gaps in the way self-employed workers are treated at tax time,” stated Alex Chriss, vice president and general manager of Self-Employed Solutions at Intuit. “Whether it is as ride-sharing, peer-to-peer rental, or online retail platforms, most on-demand economy workers don’t have any income tax withheld throughout the year, making tax time even more challenging than it is for the rest of us. That’s why Intuit is stepping up with a new solution tailored-made to enable freelance entrepreneurs to easily manage their business finances and tax filing requirements.”

These latest relationships with on-demand companies join Intuit’s previously announced partnerships with Uber, Lyft and Hourly Nerd.
