There's a lot of articles that talks about Massachusetts taxing Uber and lyft sales tax.

WTF????

There is no sales tax on the rideshare ride or taxi ride or livery service or any other mode of transportation in Massachusetts.

You do have to pay income tax on the income you receive from ridesharing. Is that what you meant to ask?

Baloney. Not sales tax. Provide links to the articles.

The state of MA started collecting 20 cents per ride. That was added to the service fee paid by the rider. That's probably where you are getting mixed up.

There is no sales tax on services in Mass. There is only a sales tax on tangible property (tv, car, toys, etc). So there would be no sales tax that would apply to rideshareing. Also no sales tax for landscaping, haircuts, etc. Those are all services not a tangible product. The 20 cent tax is to pay for the wonderful backround checks and regulate the industry (plus give money to the cities).
