Dx -  TurboTax Premium Announcement

It’s that time again — tax season. To help make filing taxes as easy as getting paid to dash, we’ve partnered with TurboTax to bring you an exclusive offer and a few important tips.

This tax season, Dashers who use TurboTax Premium tax preparation services can save 25% on filing their federal taxes. Filing with TurboTax can help you get every deduction you qualify for and your best possible tax outcome. With TurboTax Live Assisted Premium, you can even have your questions answered and your taxes reviewed by experts in self-employment taxes.

As a Dasher, you can save 25% when you file with TurboTax Premium*

Because Dashers are self-employed independent contractors, DoorDash doesn’t withhold taxes from delivery payments. It’s important to remember that you are responsible for keeping track of your earnings and accurately reporting them when you file.

We’ve put together a few tax tips to help you navigate the filing process and maximize your return.**

Important Dates to Keep in Mind

February 14, 2024

By now, you should have received a 1099-NEC form via our partner Stripe if you earned $600 or more in 2023 on the DoorDash platform. Check your inbox (or possibly your spam folder) for an email from Stripe with the subject, “Get your DoorDash 2023 tax forms faster by enabling e-delivery.” Follow the instructions to set up a Stripe Express account and select Paperless Delivery to access your tax forms online. 

Note: if you’ve updated the email address on your Dasher account, you may need to check the email address you used to sign-up as a Dasher.

February 28, 2024

You can expect an email from DoorDash with your estimated mileage on February 28, 2024. If you tracked your mileage and expenses with Everlance throughout the entire year, you can view and download your info from your account.

April 15, 2024

Taxpayers have until April 15, 2024 to file taxes. 

Because of the observances of Patriot’s Day (April 15) and Emancipation Day (April 16), taxpayers living in Maine and Massachusetts have until Wednesday, April 17, 2024, to file. 

Many parts of the U.S. have been impacted by severe weather: Residents and businesses in parts of Connecticut, Maine, Rhode Island and West Virginia that have been declared disaster areas by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) have until June 17, 2024, to file their federal returns.

A full list of federally designated disaster sites is available on the FEMA website.

Note: These dates are subject to change by the IRS.

Expenses that Could Give You Tax Breaks

As an independent contractor, you’re likely covering 100% of your business expenses. When you use your vehicle for business (and keep track of your mileage) you can lower the amount you owe for taxes — and even increase your refund.

The IRS allows you to deduct the following expenses. Here are some of the common deductions that delivery drivers can claim:

  • Mileage

  • Gas

  • Oil changes

  • Insurance

  • Parking fees

  • Car cleaning supplies

  • Cell phone service

  • Cell phone accessories (chargers, cradles and mounts, etc.)

Be sure to read up on official guidance from the IRS to see the latest deductions for your filing status.

Getting Started with your Taxes

Once you have your forms and mileage, you’re ready to begin the filing process with TurboTax. Review all of your documents and confirm that the information is accurate. Get started with TurboTax Premium— and your exclusive 25% off discount — to uncover delivery-specific deductions, and keep more of the money you earn.
