Maximize your deductions

When it comes to deducting car expenses, you have two methods to choose from. TurboTax can help if you’re unsure which method to choose.

Standard mileage method

This method provides a set rate that covers all your car expenses and doesn’t require you to track expenses or receipts manually. For every mile you drove with Lyft in 2023, you’ll get a $0.655 deduction.

Actual expense method

This method requires you to gather your receipts and add up all you’ve spent on the following costs. The percentage you use for work can be deducted for even more savings.

Gas
Repairs
Maintenance
Car payments
Insurance
Depreciation
Vehicle registration fees and licenses

Common operating expenses

All drivers may be able to write off a portion of the following expenses, regardless of which deduction method you choose.

  • Wireless plans
  • Phones and accessories
  • Parking and tolls
  • Roadside memberships
  • Streaming subscriptions
  • Health insurance
  • Cleaning supplies
  • Passenger treats

Annual Summary

All drivers will receive an Annual Summary, with a breakdown of the number of rides and online miles, gross earnings from rides, non-ride earnings, and more. It’s not an official tax document, but it has information to help you file your taxes.

1099-K

If you earned at least $20,000 in ride payments and gave at least 200 rides, you’ll receive this official IRS tax document. You may have a lower earnings threshold depending on your state. The 1099-K shows the total amount passengers paid for the rides you gave in the year. Even if you don’t receive a 1099-K, you may still have to file taxes.

1099-NEC

If you earned $600 or more from non-driving activities, like referral bonuses, incentives and streak bonuses, you’ll receive this official IRS tax document. Even if you don’t receive a 1099-NEC, you may still have to file taxes.
