KCBS_740 SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) — Uber and Lyft drivers in San Francisco who haven’t yet registered as businesses are getting a reprieve.

The city’s Tax Collector’s Office in April notified 37,000 drivers that as independent contractors they had 30 days to register as a business with the city.

That deadline has now been extended to August 31st.

Drivers who have registered and were penalized for doing it late will get refunds.
