Taxi flat fare : also from Manhattan to JFK ?

I have made some research on the web and the result is quite confusing : some websites say that the 45$ set fare is only applicable from JFK to Manhattan while Manhattan to JFK is metered, some others say that the flat fare is applicable both ways. Does someone know for sure what the current situation is ?

Thank you

And if you don't believe LMV (and you should) check the T&LC website for their published rate schedule....

$45.00 plus tolls and tip works out to 60$ US.....

As Poppa noted, the Taxi and Limousine Commission (which is the New York City governmental agency that reglates taxis) has the correct information -- which is that the flat fare applies both ways:

While other websites may have different information, if you have the official website of the governmental agency concerned telling you something, then you should accept that in preference to information that is coming from any other source.

We didn't pay tolls either way, in a Carmel car on the way and yellow cab on the way back. They both used the Queensboro Bridge which has no toll.
