Legislator Enrique Sánchez: “Uber would pay a 3% tax for each trip”

Under the premise that Uber must be legal in Costa Rica, PAC legislator Enrique Sanchez, is promoting a bill that aims to level the playing field with taxi drivers and would incorporate a 3% tax on each trip made by the drivers of Uber.

Questioned if the tax will raise the price to the consumer, the legislator said it all depends on the company, whether it decides to pass on the tax to consumers. The tax on the would be used to strengthen urban mobility and public transport.

The legislator emphasized that the proposal is personal and not an official position of the PAC party, but the party has also discussed the need to regularize Uber, and the government is aware that it must do so.
