A West Sonoma County Union High School District parcel tax, Measure B ballot question was on the March 8, 2005 ballot for voters in the West Sonoma County Union High School District in Sonoma County, California, where it was defeated.

If Measure B had been approved, it would have renewed and increased an existing parcel tax in the district to $26/year for eight more years.

A 2/3rds supermajority vote was required for approval.

As soon as Measure B failed, the school board of the district voted to put Measure K on the June 7, 2005 ballot. Measure K, which authorized a $26/year parcel tax, was approved.

Ten parcel tax proposals were on the March 8, 2005 ballot for voters in various public school districts in Sonoma County; only one of them was approved by voters.
