I work for Lyft. The closest hub's in Portland, OR, but I live and do most rides in Vancouver, WA. Do I have to pay Oregon Tax on all rides, or just rides I do in Oregon?

Washington doesn't do income tax, Oregon does. There's Lyft hub's everywhere, but the closest one to me is in Oregon. I don't drive in Oregon much, so not all my income from Lyft comes from there. I'm confused at where the line is drawn for taxable income.


Hello there, paigehalle2,

Your vehicle deduction will be calculated based from the total number of miles that were categorized as business trips. This is regardless if they're driven in a single or multiple states.

QBSE doesn't calculate or determine which state you need to pay your income taxes to. It will be best to consult a tax professional to help you.

Refer to these articles for future reference:

Let me know if you have other questions about taxes in QBSE.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
