Seminar for owners of taxicabs

The Rhode Island Division of Taxation will hold a seminar next month to explain how the state's 7 percent sales tax will apply to taxicab services.

The seminar -- intended mainly for owners and operators of taxicab services -- will be held on September 12, 2012, at 10:00 a.m., at the offices of the Rhode Island Economic Development Corporation, 315 Iron Horse Way – Suite 101, Providence (off Valley Street).

The sales tax will extend to taxicab services starting October 1, 2012. To help implement the provision, the Tax Division has posted a related Notice and a proposed regulation.
