2022 was a big year for independent work! The gig economy continued to expand; becoming one of the biggest sources of income for over 70 million people in the United States. Still feeling a domino effect from the economic downturn caused by the pandemic, we’ve seen a major shift from traditional employment to gig work over the last few years. In turn, 2022 was a huge year for us here at Solo. We’ve helped tens of thousands of independent workers earn and keep more this past year while bringing our Smart Schedule and Pay Guarantee to over 30 cities. We’re excited to look back at what we’ve seen this past year with you!

Overall, 2022 was an exciting year for the gig economy and we are excited to continue to bring new tools and features to help independent workers earn more and meet their goals in 2023 like our new Trips feature and Tax Filing functions. Our Trips feature will automatically track and sort your miles so you can maximize your deductions and save big when you file your taxes—learn more about Trips here. If you have yet to file your taxes you can now file directly through the Solo app for a flat fixed fee—learn more about tax filing here!
