Did you know?

When you're self-employed, processing your own paychecks can be complicated & time-consuming, not to mention the fines & penalties you could face if the IRS doesn't like how you did it.

We provide affordable payroll services for the self-employed, so you can focus on your work and sleep like a baby at night.

Making better decisions based on sound financial data is the key to success in businesses of all sizes. Start with a free, no-obligation consult with our professionals to get answers to your questions and learn more.

Taxi, Uber & Lyft drivers

Many freelancers or otherwise self-employed workers also work as rideshare drivers to supplement their income. Taxi, uber and lyft drivers who are categorized as self-employed or an independent contractor have special considerations when it comes to tracking their income and paying taxes. When drivers are considered self-employed they’re subject to self-employment tax, which is like payroll taxes for full-time employees.

In this case however a self-employed person has to pay both the employee’s and employer’s share of the Social Security and Medicare withholdings. It’s very important for independent contractors to have a clear understanding of income reporting and how to take advantage of all available deductions in order to minimize your tax bill.

If you work in the taxi or rideshare industry (or are thinking about it) and have questions about accounting or tax compliance, please contact us for a consultation to learn how our bookkeeping services for self-employed people can improve your relationship with numbers.
