Driving yellow seems like a more rewarding experience. Paying uber and taxes a combined rate of almost 34% is like pissing in the wind. As your revenues go up, on any given day, your profit margin hardly goes up at all. At least in yellow if you go from a $225. day to a $325. your profit almost doubles. Your only extra expense is fuel. Assuming you lease on a daily basis.

I agree.

But- if you ship that $2 pizza to jersey, it's now less then $2 because you don't need to pay the NY sales tax.

The argument is - if uber is really charging the passengers the sales tax, why isn't that reflected in an interstate trip?

They charge the customer the same rate for intrastate and interstate.

The interstate trip should be less because sales tax is not collected on interstate trips.

That argument could be used to say that uber is charging the drivers and not the passengers........

Although - I'm sure if it went to court, uber would say that they didn't cheat the drivers......

They were cheating the passengers.
If you ship a slice of pizza to NJ it will be cold when it arrives. Why not order a slice from up the block?
