TORONTO – Toronto city councillor Jim Karygiannis wants the taxman to investigate why UberX drivers don’t collect HST from its customers.
In a statement released Tuesday, Karygiannis said he received a copy of a purported email between an Uber support representative and an UberX user indicating “there is no tax charged on the rides. We also do not charge and [any] HST.”
Canada’s largest city has come out swinging in the war against Uber. Yesterday, city councillor Jim Karygiannis warned Pan Am Games visitors not to use the popular ride-hailing service or risk a fine of up to $20,000.
