What is Quarterly Taxes?

As a Rideshare Driver, the money you earned from driving your car is considered income and you must pay taxes on those earnings. Because there is no withholding from this income (e.g. taxes taken out), the government may require that you pay taxes on this amount four times a year. Estimated tax payments are due April 15th, June 15th, September 15th and January 15th.

Who owes Quarterly Taxes?

If you have more than $1,000 in 1099 taxes, you are potentially responsible to pay quarterly taxes. This amount is computed as the following:

Income – Expenses = Net Income * Self-Employed Tax Rate

In the calculation above, if the amount is more than $1,000, you may be required to pay quarterly tax.


What if I don’t pay Quarterly Taxes?

Unfortunately, if you are required to pay quarterly taxes and do not pay, penalties may be applied to you when you file your income tax return. In 2015 alone, the IRS assessed over $1 billion dollars in estimated tax penalties.

​I started using Airbnb to rent out an extra room in my house last year and had no idea that I needed to save money for taxes when April 15th came around the corner. Luckily, I came to the Shared Economy CPA and was able to deduct more than I had anticipated and was able to save a ton of money. I would highly recommend Derek’s services to anyone who is looking to save money on their taxes and wants high quality professional services.

Derek and his team were incredible in helping me not only fulfill my tax obligations for both Airbnb and RelayRides, but helped save me a ton of money in deductions I would have never known I was eligible for! They were smart, efficient, and gave me peace of mind as I knew they were not only tax pros in the traditional sense, but specialize in the shared economy as well! I am so happy to have found this organization!
