The Oertel case: A private hire vehicle transporting people was deemed to be a taxi and was taxed accordingly. We imagine that’s what you would think too. The Court of Justice of the European Union and the Federal Fiscal Court, however, did not. The case deals with, amongst other things, the question of whether people can be declared as goods. One of our partners, Professor Dr. Thomas Küffner, will be happy to provide further information about this case to you.
