Prop S

Hosted by

Los Angeles now has a 10% tax on telephones, but it’s highly likely to be overturned by the courts—at a cost to the city of $243 million dollars. On February 5th, LA voters will be asked to impose a 9% tax on communications devices including cell phones.  It’s an emergency measure, so instead of the usual two-thirds of the vote, it will require a simple majority.
