Hello. Thank you for choosing this Q&A service for assistance. My name is***** will be assisting you. I am prepping my response, which I will provide to you in the next thread(s).

Ask Your Own Tax Question

You really should have received a 1099-MISC or a 1099-K from Uber. You may want to contact UBER and ask that they send you a duplicate one. While you don't necessarily need the 1099 from them, it might be best if you did have one because UBER tends to add certain expenses in with your income, which you can offset with deductions.

Once you receive the 1099, you would report the income/expenses on the Schedule C. You might find the document at the following link useful as well. It is an Uber Partner Guide.

Neither it is a 1099-MISC
or1099K

It's rather odd that they just sent you a random document. It doesn't really matter, you report your income and expenses on the Schedule C as mentioned in my previous response. Your income is your gross receipts.
