    irs allows 57c mile to be deducted as ur cost to drive anf kill ur car....u might say all uber passenger miles are triple to get there drop off and return so 10k miles paid is actualy 3x=30k mile or app 17,000 deduction

    You can either claim actual expenses, or take the miles deduction. You will usually fare better with the miles deduction. Whichever choice you make, you will have to stick with that unless you buy a new car. Check with your tax consultant for the best advice. I recommend you stay away from scam companies like H&R Block. Find an honest accountant, through family, and friends references.
