Levi & Korsinsky, LLP is investigating potential claims against Lyft, Inc. concerning Lyft’s practice of deducting more than 11 percent from drivers’ fares on interstate trips originating in New York.
Under New York state law and regulations, passengers must pay an 8.875% sales tax on each trip they take and a 2.5% surcharge for a state workers’ compensation fund. The New York sales tax and surcharges do not apply when a ride begins in New York and ends in another state. However, Lyft may be underpaying its drivers by deducting New York state sales tax and surcharges on out-of-state trips that should be applied only to rides that begin and end in New York, and then disguising those charges as administrative fees. Lyft had previously explained that the administrative fees (initially 10%) were to cover New York sales tax and surcharges.
If you are a current or former Lyft driver and wish to learn more about this investigation, feel free to contact Rosemary M. Rivas, Esq. or Courtney Maccarone, Esq. of Levi & Korsinsky, LLP to discuss your legal rights at 212-363-7500.
