NYC/NYS sales tax

Perhaps one of the more seasoned drivers can explain this to me as I'm new to this market.

What is the reason that drivers pay the sales tax out of fares? Is it not like when you go to a restaurant and the consumer pays the tax on whatever their bill is?

Shouldn't it be sales tax on top of the fare, paid by the consumer and collected by uber?

Sorry did a search and couldn't find this answered on here, although I'm sure it has been discussed.

Also, read an article that said that uber claims it pays more than its fair share of tax here in NY... I hope they are not referring to the tax that drivers pay out of our fares.

15-20 years ago no driver gave a chit about the sales tax or tolls. Everybody used to make decent earnings back then. What a crap, drivers counting pennies nowadays.
