i came across quite a few sentences that are making me confused , so i thought to raise the issue in here

what is the right way for following sentences :

i earn more than you OR i earn more than you do.

i am taller than you OR i am taller than you are

As per me :

i earn more than you do
--because earn cannot be compared to a person(in this case pronoun -you) Also i remember having read that whenever there is a verb in comparison (here earn)
then you need to add a verb to the other noun phrase (here you) as well.

i am taller than you
-- because here i am comparing the property(height) of the noun (i) to the property of the other noun (you).

I think " I am taller that you are" will be considered correct usage on the GMAT. But I am not very sure Sorry
