Dufty seeks tax break for car share parking 

Supervisor Bevan Dufty requested on Tuesday that the City Attorney draft legislation that would “exempt any car sharing company from paying parking taxes in city for the spots and stalls reserved and used by the car sharing company.”

Dufty said the intent is to “encourage more car sharing spots to be made available in parking locations.”

How The City’s parking tax works, according to a report produced by the City Controller’s Office is as follows:

“The City imposes a tax on the occupancy of all off-street parking spaces throughout the City. The tax rate is 25 percent of total parking charges. For example, if a customer is charged $8 for parking (exclusive of parking tax), plus an additional $2 to cover the 25 percent parking tax, total parking charges collected by the garage operator from the customer will be $10.”
