Important Notice for Medallion Owners and Drivers
The Lease Cap rules approved by the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC) in July 2012 include a $0.06-per-trip driver healthcare services fee to be contributed by Taxi Drivers and deposited with a vendor selected by the TLC. Medallion Owners or TPEP vendors may only begin withholding this fee from Taxi Drivers once directed by the TLC.
Any Medallion Owners or TPEP vendors who have collected this fee from Taxi Drivers should immediately return any and all amounts collected to the appropriate Taxi Drivers. Failure to return fees previously collected, or continuing to collect the fee prior to direction by the TLC to do so, will be considered an overcharge and summonses may be issued to Medallion Owners pursuant to TLC Rule 58-21(c).
The TLC will issue an Industry Notice when it is permissible to collect this fee.
