Lawmakers are planning to get rid of an 8.875% sales tax on livery cab rides...because they haven't been able to collect any money. Albany had expected to earn at least $30 million when they put the tax into effect last year, but could never force livery owners to pay up. So instead, they're just exempting those 20,000 vehicles, and law-abiding limo drivers are furious about the special treatment. Wayne Baden, lead lawyer for the Black Car Assistance Corp, told the Post, "We think liveries are scofflaws. This is government inaction." Is this how taxing works? Everybody stop paying property taxes, and let us know when lawmakers say they don't need the money anyway.
