        AN ACT to amend the tax law, in relation to requiring  medallion  agents
          to manage payments of the congestion surcharge

          The  People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and Assem-
        bly, do enact as follows:

     1    Section 1. Subdivision (a) of section 1299-b of the tax law, as  added
     2  by  section  2 of part NNN of chapter 59 of the laws of 2018, is amended
     3  to read as follows:
     4    (a) Notwithstanding any provision of law to the contrary,  any  person
     5  that  dispatches  a motor vehicle by any means that provides transporta-
     6  tion that is subject to a surcharge imposed by this  article,  including
     7  transportation  network  companies as defined in article forty-four-B of
     8  the vehicle and traffic law, shall be liable for the  surcharge  imposed
     9  by this article, except that in the case of taxicab trips and HAIL vehi-
    10  cle trips that are also subject to tax pursuant to article twenty-nine-A
    11  of this chapter, only the taxicab owner or HAIL base liable for that tax
    12  shall  be  the  person liable for the surcharge imposed by this article,
    13  except where agents licensed by the taxi and  limousine  commission  are
    14  authorized on behalf of medallion owners to manage the medallions and/or
    15  make  payments  of the surcharge as laid out in article twenty-nine-A of
    16  this chapter, such agents are solely liable for  making  these  payments
    17  absent a good faith dispute of the amount owed. Where agents licensed by
    18  the  taxi and limousine commission are authorized on behalf of medallion
    19  owners to manage the medallions and/or make payments of the metropolitan
    20  transportation authority improvement  zone  surcharge  such  agents  are
    21  entitled  to  make  batch  payments  of  all  medallions managed with an
    22  accounting of each medallion trip represented in the batch payment.  For
    23  purposes  of  this  section,  the  terms  "taxicab trips," "HAIL vehicle
    24  trips," "taxicab owner," and "HAIL base" shall have the same meaning  as
    25  they do in section twelve hundred eighty of this chapter.
    26    § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
