Hi, my name is Mark. I will be happy to help you with your questions. Does Uber provide you with any documentation regarding the mileage that you drive?
Ideally you would want to keep a log or your beginning and ending locations. The Uber app should provide you the mileage information. You would also want to pick up the mileage that you drive to pick up a customer. A spreadsheet with all of the destinations would provide the most support if audited. If you record the mileage on a calendar (beginning and ending) along with the information on the Uber app would be sufficient to support your mileage. Can you download the Uber app information to a hard copy. My concern would be what if this information was not available down the road. For Lyft you would need to keep a more detailed log.
