Taxi invoice seller gets 1 year

A man who illegally sold taxi invoices online was sentenced to one year in prison with one year of probation and was fined 10,000 yuan (US$1,587), Xuhui District People's Court said yesterday.

Xu Luhao, 23, set up an online store on, China's biggest e-commerce platform, in December 2010, selling printed taxi invoices that he got from some local taxi drivers who were friends of his father.

Prosecutors said Xu sold more than 160 invoices within two months and made a profit of about 300 yuan. Nearly 860 more invoices were seized in Xu's home after he was detained by police in February last year.

Xu said he came up with the idea based on simple supply and demand.

"To passengers, a single taxi invoice may be useless and easy to neglect," said Xu.

"But to people who need taxi invoices for urgent use or need a large quantity of them for various purposes, taxi invoices could be valuable."

Xu said his clients used the invoices to get reimbursed for traffic expenses.
