Time for Rideshare and Delivery Drivers to Prepare 2016 Taxes

Its unfortunately that magical time of year to start thinking about your taxes. Any income rideshare and delivery drivers make must be listed on your income taxes. This is the best time to start thinking about it ahead of the tax season as there are some things you can do this month to lower your taxes and make it easier to file come tax time.
Things to start doing now:

Many tax professionals are recommend that you file your taxes early since there was a large spike in fraudulent tax returns last year by scammers to steal refunds from other people.

It goes in depth about how to file your taxes, what you can and cannot deduct, and so much more!

As another reminder, there is an estimated taxes payment BEFORE April 15:
This is why it is critical that you get a sense of how much you owe NOW so you will be ready for the estimated tax payments, the most critical being in March 2017, the first estimated tax payments for most drivers who started in 2016.
