Vote YES on Measure T – Invest in Our Oakland – on November’s ballot so that we can transform our business tax structure and provide protections to our most impacted communities. The measure will generate over $20 million for essential city services to address our unhoused neighbors’ needs, provide public safety alternatives to police, clean our streets and our parks, and keep libraries open.
Did you know a new tax structure could save essential city services and provide protections for small businesses without increasing the tax burden on residents and homeowners? It’s time to modernize Oakland’s outdated regressive business tax structure. This is our chance to hold big wealthy corporations accountable to paying their fair share of taxes and provide tax relief to more than 20,000 small businesses in Oakland struggling to make ends meet.
