Fairless Hills, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/14/2018 -- PA Auto Credit would like to make New Jersey residents aware of a new proposed tax on ride-sharing services like Uber and Lyft is drawing ire from opponents, who are criticizing the initiative as an unfair tax capitalizing on low-income individuals and families. The new 7% sales tax introduced on ride-sharing apps is part of a proposed $37.4 billion budget proposed by Governor Phil Murphy. The new tax is to be introduced along with $1.6 billion other new fees and taxes, including those on home-sharing service Airbnb and electronic cigarettes.
Critics of the proposed tax claim that the tax paints ride-sharing services as an indulgence when in reality, many depend on these services as their only mode of transportation. Some even go so far as to claim the tax is an attempt to exploit even more money from New Jersey's working class, especially those in rural areas who cannot get to work using public transportation.
"Many think of rideshare services like Uber and Lyft as a luxury – in fact, in many cases they're the opposite," wrote Carlos Medina, chairman of the Statewide Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of New Jersey.
Many New Jersey residents who depend upon ride-sharing services do so because they have made financial mistakes in the past that prevent them from getting the auto loans necessary to purchase a vehicle. However, dealerships offering buy here pay here near Trenton, NJ can extend their line of credit to the buyer, offering an alternative for those who are working to build up their credit score or who are recovering from an unexpected expense.
