Answer
Great question! Yes, you'll be able to claim the QBI deduction while you deliver for DoorDash if your business is organized as a sole proprietorship, LLC, partnership, or S-Corp. The QBI deduction allows you to deduct up to 20% of qualifed business income. But keep in mind the QBI deduction is complex with so be sure to chat with your tax professional.
