Juno Official has addressed it previously. While they are including the sales tax of the ride fare (base+mileage+time) in the total fare, Juno is currently billing the customer for sales tax which applies to tolls.I wonder what Juno Official stance is on this? Seems that by also taking tax out of fare you are in essence passing a savings to the consumer on the backs of the drivers, and basically charging driver near 20% off the fares.
Does Ryan Price care to share what his organizations stance is on this?
NYTransit you wrote an article where you said UBER say they pay their fare share in taxes. You do realize that neither the passenger (consumer) nor Uber is paying this tax? Also, uber takes its commission on the entire fare (pre sales tax) while the driver pays for the tax+commission (both on a pre sales tax basis)
It's a step in the right direction.
I think this should be a top priority for Ryan Price and IDG. It would immediately put more money in the driver's pocket.
I've addressed the "double tax" issue a long time ago, but it never seemed to get much traction:
