Intuit and Uber are partnering to offer Uber drivers access to QuickBooks Online Self-Employed.

As workers in the on-demand economy, Uber's partner drivers will benefit from the solution’s ability to calculate a year’s worth of gross fares, mileage, tolls, gas payments and other expenses.   

Uber partners will receive a free version of QBO Self-Employed, which sends their data from the software into TurboTax Online to complete their year-end taxes.

“Uber is giving hundreds of thousands of individuals a new and exciting way to earn income and many will encounter a new set of tax obligations,” stated Alex Chriss, vice president and general manager of Self-Employed Solutions at Intuit. “We’ve set out to empower people working in the on-demand economy by giving them easy to use tools for managing business revenue and expenses. By partnering with Uber, we’re able to offer a tailor-made solution that simplifies tax time, and provides clear visibility into their income throughout the year.”

Uber driver partners taking advantage of the free version will also have the option to connect additional bank and credit card accounts.

“Uber has grown significantly this past year, which means we've also seen growth in the number of driver partners utilizing the Uber platform, many of whom are new to self-employed business requirements,” stated David Richter, vice president of strategic initiatives at Uber. “Our relationship with Intuit will help our partners to manage their business finances and be prepared every time they need to pay taxes.”
